We have seen this occur throughout the world over the centuries, from Ireland under the British to the Americas, and the absolute dispossession and extermination of our own indigenous populations here in the USA.
Here we see about 250 photos taken by a Dutch photographer with an excellent camera set-up (that lens alone is to cherish, and the envy of any photographer) published generously in an over 350 page book, with minimal captions presenting the culture, letting the images speak for themselves, and a very brief introduction explaining, very briefly, that these people's property, culture, ways of life and of survival, and lives will soon be entirely wiped out by the building of an enormous dam which benefits only the central government far away and the energy corporations.
Perhaps more text might help those of us unfamiliar with the drastic situation which these good people soon will suffer, having survived for centuries with joy and dignity and love in a very hostile environment, only to be wiped out now by an unseeing bureaucracy far away. Perhaps these simple images may draw this plight, this crime against humanity, to the eyes of the world.
Certainly we can each easily do the heavy lifting and the research from our armchair of the history and present perilous plight of these peoples.Read more ›
I Can see how much work you have been done for this "Tribal Ethiopia" and how much effort and time you have spent to putting together and I'm very Happy to have one of Your first Published Book and I know you are very passionate photographer and always tries to achieve the best and I was so excited to see the result of the book.
I love the content of the book,the strong portraits,the whole feel of it and when I looked through the book I feel there,right in Ethiopia.
I love the material of the book which is printed on matt paper it gives very strong character and it has strong hardcover as well,full bleed pages as it gives that extra feel of 'being there' with selected closed up images and able to see the details,such as hairstyles of the people are so amazing.I just love it.....This is a very professional book and that it is worth of money spent on it.
I am very happy with this book and Looking forward to own another book from you..xx
It's rare that a photographer gets this close to these people. They obviously trust her and have let her into their amazing worlds. She has treated her subjects with respect and admiration and they in return have open their souls.
Well done Ingetje.
