Image of these perfect bodies taking up the meanders of the river, drawings made to protect themselves from the sun that become to the sandstone inspirations of real works of art that would not deny Picasso or Matisse...

Hans Silvester discovered the peoples of the Omo Valley in Ethiopia in 2002. All his talent is expressed through these photos that testify to his great sense of observation and his ability to gain the confidence of these remote ethnic groups. Far from our culture, practising different languages and uses, these men and women, these children, transmit to us through Hans' gaze their art, their generosity and their precarious balance that they maintain with nature.

The gallery Retour De Voyage presents this series of photographs throughout the year, and you can discover them in some of the suites of La Maison Sur La Sorgue

We appreciate this series of a raw aestheticism, witness of a bygone era, paying homage to this life combining art and nature, where beings have been able to reinvent the clothes of nature.
