These body paintings appear so pure, so full of freedom, of fantasy that it can easily evoke in the line, the task or the arabesque works of Matisse, Miro and Picasso.

The journalists Hans Silvester discovered the Omo Valley in 2002. Initially, he went there to meet the researchers of Lucy, the oldest human being. It was with Moulou, his faithful guide, that he finally met the various local peoples. Fascinated by their way of life, he develops strong ties with the tribes. His photographs reveal the various body paintings of these peoples, attesting to the photographer's patience and the trust he was able to instil. These pictures reveal their art, their generosity and the precarious balance they maintain with nature. These numerous photographs bring us closer to these people, along the banks of the Omo.

Retour De Voyage has selected this photo which highlights the harmony of the colours and its layout which could be described as abstract.
