New York-based art director Diego Arroyo, whose photography we have featured in the past, recently visited Ethiopia and captured images of the tribes in the Omo Valley. In these striking portraits, Arroyo manages to highlight the cultural identities of the individuals without othering them. “All humans share the same emotions, and that’s what makes us all the same and unique in a very special way,” he writes. “Showing that overall honest connection is the main purpose of my work. In a way, I try to make people relate to the subject, catch glimpses of their deep emotions and personalities, show the underlying magic that deserves to be seen and usually remains unnoticeable. When we understand each other in that kind of way, cultural differences become quite insignificant.” Take a look at the collection after the jump.
