I’m not much into traditions. As such, communities who uphold theirs, particularly ethnic groups, fascinate me.
Photo shows a Berta (Bertha) mother and child from Keshaf Village, near the Sudan border. Theirs is among the 5 largest ethnic tribes in Benishangul-Gumuz Region of Ethiopia. Living near the Sudan-Ethiopia border, they have maintained much of their tradition throughout the centuries.
(Apologies for inverted photo. It keeps on doing that no matter what I do.)
