In this series of images, entitled Ethiopian RGB, I want to unveil some of the precious colors that shape Ethiopian lands, culture and people, as opposed to the rather common grey preconception of the country. Always in a delicate balance between humble attitudes and arrogant natural beauty, these images also reflect my travel experiences and life philosophy.
Red - Erta Ale eruptions result into stunning abstract and even spiritual performances
Green - Ethiopian highlands reflect the beauty of the country and the population care for land
Blue - A shepherd covered with colorful local clothes seeks shelter at 2500m
The endemic Gelada loves grasslands; time for a nap on the cliffs now.
Yellow - A soldier secures the access to the sulfur fields close to the Eritrean border
White - Lalibela's monolithic rock-cut churches treasure rich traditions
Black - Kinds and shadows play before lunch time in Debark
