Plant People

A new collection from photographer Hans Silvester documents the incredible plant-based ceremonial and celebratory outfits of he Surma and Mursi tribes of East Africa's Omo Valley. This region, which borders Kenya, Ethiopia, and the Sudan, is certainly not one of the least troubled areas of the globe. Yet people there, as everywhere, find time to continue old traditions that glorify and celebrate humankind's connection to Nature. A rich, beautiful, and heartening display.
Some selections below.
