The Suri of southwestern Ethiopia are a relatively small and remote tribe that possess an extremely strong creative capacity to adorn their bodies with natural pigments and any item they can find from nature or otherwise. The variations are endless.

Hans Silvester.  Silvester's recent work features the Surma and Mursi people of the Omo Valley in southern Ethiopia, presenting the beauty of the tribes' ancient tradition of temporary body decoration. His photographs reveal the use of bright mineral paints to embellish the skin and the use of flora and fauna to fashion spectacular headpieces and body accessories. His commitment to the documentation and preservation of relatively unfamiliar earthly marvels is visible in these photographs…

These are from a book by photographer, Hans Silvester: Natural Fashion, Tribal Decoration from Africa. Published by Thames Hudson. They are from the Surma and Musi tribes of the Omo Valley in East Africa.
