More Photos

My apologies for disappearing for a while. Trying to upload photographs to the web in Ethiopia is not an easy task. I am beginning to work on an in-depth photo essay on the city of Addis Ababa that will explore such themes as the incredible Rastafarian culture, coffee ceremonies, traditional dance, orthodox rituals and the city’s mission to emerge as a modern metropolis, as well as the city’s on-going struggles with poverty and democracy. Let me know what you think of the photos I’m posting so far, and I’ll make sure to post the essay when it’s finished!
