Photographer's Note

The old man from a Karo tribe I met at the market in Turmi village in Omo Valley.

The Karo live in the Southern Omo Zone or Omo Valley, in a few small villages near the Mago river. Their name is also spelled as Kara. This dying race of half-nomads numbers only about 500. They share many traditions with their Hamar neighbors, including the economic system, social system, religious values, and the highly sophisticated hair-cuts. The only real difference is the fact that they regard themselves as a separate people. The Karo are closely related to the Kwegu.
