Surma, Suri tribe, Omo Valley, Southern Ethiopia,

Two young Surma, Suri, girls standing in the river in the small town of Kibish in the Omo Valley. Inspired by their environment of wild trees, exotic flowers, and lush vegetation these tribes use colorful make-up of bright yellows, startling whites, and rich earth-reds created from the clay soil. They wear flamboyant accessories and brilliant head decorations to become a walking body of art. As a celebration of themselves they paint each other?s bodies and make bold decisions about their outfits motivated by the sheer fun of creating and showing off to other members of the tribe.
