The Surma Tribe of the Omo 'valley, Ethiopia...a place where mankind probably began. The children appear innocent and beautiful, with their ornate boy paint work and exotic head decorations made of flowers. The place appears peaceful and untouched, but in reality, life here is harsh with the tribespeople at frequent wars with neighbouring tribes over cattle grazing rights. The line between peace and war is very fine and very blurred. They can be so near to each other, yet at times appear so far from each other...
The only building high enough to give an uninterrupted vista of the Tokyo skyline is the new Sky Tree Tower. A metropolis of over 30 million people, seeing this view and finally appreciating what this actually means is utterly breathtaking!
Brumbies are the wild horses that live in Australia's Snowy Mountains. In the spring, when the snow melts, the young stallions compete for mares and territory. In the many years I have spent photographing them I have only ever seen three fights. On this day, a couple of weeks ago there were many fights.
