The harmony between the colors of the painted houses and the animals is awesome. Hans Silvester says: "It's even funny when you look at these chickens. I really get the impression that they like it. They participate. you get attached to them and they overact. They pose, like models. They seem happy to be watched. The children have fun with them and the girls often take them under their arm. 

It was in Ethiopia, 600 km south of the capital, that Hans Silvester met the Bench, an ethnic group of farmers. The discovery of this people was almost by chance. Hans Silvester was on his way to the Omo Valley when he came across some painted houses. Curious and above all admiring, he put on his explorer's hat, and quickly realized that few people were interested in this culture. He describes the Bench people as "modest": no one owns more than 6 sheep. But the harmony in which they live touched the photographer's heart. It must be said that the animals are totally integrated into the daily life and create a very special atmosphere. Animals and people live in symbiosis, in total freedom. 

Retour De Voyage has selected this photo which perfectly illustrates the harmony in which people and chickens live in a setting of exceptional beauty.
