Astonishingly beautiful pictures from Ethiopia’s Omo Valley by award-winning photographer Joey L. A massive hydro-electric dam, Gibe III, is under construction on the Omo. When completed it will destroy a fragile environment and the livelihoods of the tribes, which are closely linked to the river and its annual flood.
The Bodi believe in a sky God they call Tuma, who brings the rains and is the life force of all living creatures.
This picture is available as a greetings card, with all profits going to Survival’s campaigns.
