Over the Eid Al Aha holiday we were able to take a break from Sudan and head to Southern Ethopia.
The Mursi (or Murzu) are a Nilotic pastoralist ethnic group that inhabits southwestern Ethiopia. They principally reside in the Debub Omo Zone of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People's Region, close to the border with South Sudan. According to the 2007 national census, there are 7,500 Mursi, 448 of whom live in urban areas; of the total number, 92.25% live in the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People's Region (SNNPR).
Mursi from Dinka
Surrounded by mountains between the Omo River and its tributary the Mago, the home of the Mursi is one of the most isolated regions of the country. Their neighbors include the Aari, the Banna, the Bodi, the Kara, the Kwegu, the Me'en, the Nyangatom and the Suri. They are grouped together with the Me'en and Suri by the Ethiopian government under the name Surma.

un double portrait tres reussi (peut-etre un poil sombre)
je me permet de mettre ta photo dans le theme "allaitement dans le monde" (et peut-etre aussi dans "portage"
une photo bien cadrée et le choix de la profondeur de champ permet un joli bokeh

You have an interesting gallery Benjamin. I will have to take a lot of time to comment ! :)
Love this one, an intimate moment for the child but the mother posing in front of the camera.
The kind of photography I would like to see more.
