• Hamer tribeswomen at Turmi and Key Afer markets in Southern Ethiopia Anisha Shah - Gogobot
Anisha Shah's rating:
Turmi and Key Afer markets are fiercely local in every sense. Hamer tribes converge to browse vegetables and household goods spread on cloths on the dusty soil. Hamer women feature tightly knit braided hair covered in red earth and butter, which seeps onto rich coffee skin. Breasts are exposed, as are backs, which bear deep scars of pre-wedding ritual slashings. Skirts made of animal hide also cover men, whose hair is dressed in bright colourful beads.
