Ethiopia photography portfolio is all about the country, known as the Horn of Africa, is a rugged country that is split by the Great Rift Valley. With its archaeological finds dating back more than 3 million years, it’s a place of great culture and amazing views. Among its important sites are Lalibela which houses some rock-cut Christian churches from the 12th–13th centuries.
I organized and led a Photo Workshop to Ethiopia in January 2016. Chris Marquardt & Trevor Cole also participated in this workshop.
Ethiopia is a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic country as religion has a major influence in the people’s life. Almost half the population belongs to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church but there is also a large Muslim population. Others follow the ancient form of Judaism.
The Ethiopians have a very interesting culture which they take strongly. The greetings here are very courteous and formal. When greeting across genders, men are expected to wait if a woman extends her hand. People are usually addressed with their titles or first name.
From our drive through the salt fields, going to the church to pray, visiting the Geothemal area Danakil, participating and meeting people at the Timkat Festival, to visiting the Colourful Danakil; Tim vollmer captured every scene during this wonderful photo workshop to compile Ethiopia photography portfolio displaying the wonderful culture of the Ethiopian people.
