Both playful and seductive, the embellishment of bodies is part of a social behaviour. Here, no constraints are imposed, these spontaneous and ephemeral clay masks express absolute freedom.

The great reporter 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 has been able to instil. 

The photos of these young women and men adorning themselves with natural colours, reinventing unique designs several times a day, was selected by Retour De Voyage.
