The Lower Omo Valley in Ethiopia's southwest is an ancient crossroad for human migration from Somalia, Kenya and Sudan. The region is home to some of Africa’s most fascinating tribes including the Hamar, Suri, Mursi, Karo and Arbore; where body adornment of colourful jewellery, animal skins, clay lip plates, body paint and scarring can still be seen in tribal communities today.
South African travel photographer David Ballam has captured the beauty of these tribes in his Omo Collection, a series of black and white portraits of women, men and children from this remote corner of Africa.
We have full access to his Omo Collection catalogue and feature a small selection of our favourites in the Safari Store. We can also assist with artwork from his other collections including Turkana (Kenya), Asante Sana (Zanzibar), Ilha (Mozambique), Rough Cut (Namibia) and Leaving Lubango (Angola) and take care of the stretching and framing as well.
Following is a render I created for a client recently to help them visualise how a pair of David's photographic canvas' would work on their entrance wall. If you would like to see how this beautiful Fine Art Photography could work in your space, please call or touch base by email.
