Amazing series of portraits made in South Ethiopia’s Omo River Valley.
Austrian-born photographer Mario Marino spent a couple of months there to work on what he calls ‘photographic psychograms’ of its inhabitants. Every portrayed person represents a different micro-culture of the region. A region that’s under threat of losing it’s unique cultural diversity because of tourism, social globalisation etc.
