Young Girl from the Bodi Tribe, Omo Valley, Ethiopia.

This picture is part of a Serie called "African Vogue", which was taken in October 2013.

All pictures were taken in natural light situations – no flash was used. In a few cases, a sun swapper or a shade panel was used but mostly, pictures were taken in direct sun light / clouds and natural shade situations. Most of the portraits were taken “on the field”, which means that people did not prepare themselves for the shooting – they rather “came as they were”.

All pictures were taken with a Leica S digital middle format camera. No tripod or monopod was used; all pictures were taken “freestyle”.

The series contains about 300 portraits different tribe members (Arbore Tribe, Mursi Tribe, Nyangatom Tribe, Bodi Tribe, Hamer Tribe, Benna Tribe, Konso).

I loved this picture in color, but i like it even more in BW.

The Bodi ( or Mekan / Me'en ) live near the Omo river and are the neighbours of the Mursi. Some women wear a small clayplate under their lower lip. This is a statussymbol and means that they have had at least 3 children. The Bodi are under a lot of pressure of the sugarcane factories that are being build in their territory.

The Bodi ( or Mekan / Me'en ) live near the Omo river and are the neighbours of the Mursi. Some women wear a small clayplate under their lower lip. This is a statussymbol and means that they have had at least 3 children. The Bodi are under a lot of pressure of the sugarcane factories that are being build in their territory.

The Omo River and its fertile lands, now cut off by the Gibbé3 dam, and siphoned off to irrigate the new giant farms owned by foreign companies. The 200000 inhabitants of the southern tribes are considered «behind the times » by Addis. They are moved by force, oppressed, put in jail, and some are even killed. 50 deaths occurred in Maji, 11 in Dima, 5 in Koka the last few weeks, including women and children.
The Bodi (or Meen) ethnic group, live close to the Omo River in southern Ethiopia and have the Mursi tribe as south neighbor. They are pastoralists and agriculturalists, thus livestock plays a large role in the tribe. Along the banks of the river, they cultivate sorghum, maize and coffee.
For their new year in June, called Kael, Bodi men are overweight because they consume large amounts of honey, milk and blood. This is a tradition that measures the body fat of a contestant. Each family or clan is allowed to enter an unmarried contestant. The winner of this contest is awarded great fame by the tribe. Men also wear a headband with feathers attached to it during rituals. The women in the tribe wear goatskin skirts and have a plug inserted into their chin. Most of them are now christians.

The Bodi (or Meen) ethnic group, live close to the Omo River in southern Ethiopia and have the Mursi tribe as south neighbor. They are pastoralists and agriculturalists, thus livestock plays a large role in the tribe. Along the banks of the river, they cultivate sorghum, maize and coffee.
For their new year in June, called Kael, Bodi men are overweight because they consume large amounts of honey, milk and blood. This is a tradition that measures the body fat of a contestant. Each family or clan is allowed to enter an unmarried contestant. The winner of this contest is awarded great fame by the tribe. Men also wear a headband with feathers attached to it during rituals. The women in the tribe wear goatskin skirts and have a plug inserted into their chin. Most of them are now christians.

For few years, Ethiopian government is carrying out a major plan of modernization and industrial development in the Omo Valley; roads, Gibe dams, on the Omo River. Plantations are built and made possible by the land grabbing leaded by the Ethiopian Authority like in Hana Mursi or Koka villages; to achieve its goals, Ethiopian government planned to displace local population towards settlements areas in new villages; the Omo Valley houses multiple different tribes like Hamer, Mursi, Nyangatom, Bodi, Suri, Karo, Dassanech, Bana, Tsamay, Erbore, Menit with rich and primary lifestyle and practices; these tribes are threaten by the army into giving up the land where their ancestors lived and abandoned their traditional lifestyle; some tribes have surrounded and accepted to move in the settlement areas; others refuse to leave those fertile lands and drop their culture and traditions, they came into resistance with their limited means at their disposal,; the government allocates those lands to foreign companies (Malaysian, Saudis, Indians…) who all rent land at the paltry cost of one euro per hectare a year; this governmental practice is seen by the opponents as the result of a corruption system; the lifestyle of the local tribes are endangered, they depend on the crops and their cattle; without land to graze for their cows, in the settlement area, they will face the inherent problems of urban life (aids, disease, alcohol, loss of social reference); the situation is worrying as the increase in acts of intimidation (arbitrary imprisonment, threats) and murders in the area.
The Bodi (or Meen) ethnic group, live close to the Omo River in southern Ethiopia and have the Mursi tribe as south neighbor. They are pastoralists and agriculturalists, thus livestock plays a large role in the tribe. Along the banks of the river, they cultivate sorghum, maize and coffee.

The man on the picture is from Bodi tribe, in Hana Mursi. The place was totally tribal few years ago, but now, the gouvernement plans to send 300 000 people for plantations...End of a culture.

For few years, Ethiopian government is carrying out a major plan of modernization and industrial development in the Omo Valley; roads, Gibe dams, on the Omo River. Plantations are built and made possible by the land grabbing leaded by the Ethiopian Authority like in Hana Mursi or Koka villages; to achieve its goals, Ethiopian government planned to displace local population towards settlements areas in new villages; the Omo Valley houses multiple different tribes like Hamer, Mursi, Nyangatom, Bodi, Suri, Karo, Dassanech, Bana, Tsamay, Erbore, Menit with rich and primary lifestyle and practices; these tribes are threaten by the army into giving up the land where their ancestors lived and abandoned their traditional lifestyle; some tribes have surrounded and accepted to move in the settlement areas; others refuse to leave those fertile lands and drop their culture and traditions, they came into resistance with their limited means at their disposal,; the government allocates those lands to foreign companies (Malaysian, Saudis, Indians…) who all rent land at the paltry cost of one euro per hectare a year; this governmental practice is seen by the opponents as the result of a corruption system; the lifestyle of the local tribes are endangered, they depend on the crops and their cattle; without land to graze for their cows, in the settlement area, they will face the inherent problems of urban life (aids, disease, alcohol, loss of social reference); the situation is worrying as the increase in acts of intimidation (arbitrary imprisonment, threats) and murders in the area.
The Bodi (or Meen) ethnic group, live close to the Omo River in southern Ethiopia and have the Mursi tribe as south neighbor. They are pastoralists and agriculturalists, thus livestock plays a large role in the tribe. Along the banks of the river, they cultivate sorghum, maize and coffee.
For their new year in June, called Kael, Bodi men are overweight because they consume large amounts of honey, milk and blood. This is a tradition that measures the body fat of a contestant. Each family or clan is allowed to enter an unmarried contestant. The winner of this contest is awarded great fame by the tribe. Men also wear a headband with feathers attached to it during rituals. The women in the tribe wear goatskin skirts and have a plug inserted into their chin. Most of them are now christians.

Mursi, the main town of the Bodis, the government plans to settle 300 000 people from all over Ethiopia over the next few years into the area. Along with the workers and soldiers, AIDS and Hepatitis B are coming too. They do not want to give up their traditions and their land to allow the new sugar cane plantations irrigated by the water of Gibe 3 dam, and live in the settlements planned by the government. If the Konso attempt to set foot on their land with the support of the government, clashes will erupt predict the Bodi elders.

The Bodis live in south Ethiopia, in the Jinka area. Every year, they celebrate their new year, between june and july, depending on the full moon, the rains,and...how drunk is their chief!
This year, the rains were not good and the chief totally drunk... he had a meeting in Jinka, 2 hours drive from the village, and was stuck in the bars. People were angry, so i sent my driver to pick him!
Back to Hana Mursi village, the chief was still drunk, but lead the ceremony!
Usually some fat men are dancing, but this year, the harvests were so bad that nobody could follow the rule: not enough milk...
On the picture, the Bodis put ashes on their bodies before killing a cow.

The Bodi are pastoralists living close the Omo River in south- western Ethiopia.
The Bodi are of Nilo-sahran stock and pastoral background. Although they do cultivate sorghum along the banks of the Omo River, their culture is very much cattle centered. Similar to the Mursi, livestock plays an important role I marriage, divination, and name-giving rituals. The Bodi classification of cattle is complex, with over eight words to denote different colors and patterns. Bodi dress is simple. The women wear goatskins tied at the waist and shoulder, while men fasten a strip of cotton or bark-cloth around their waist.

These Bodi boys are viewing the photos i took on my other camera, it's always a great pleasure to see how they react, i think some have never seen anything like that before and it's a great way to"break the ice". Most of the times if they dont want on the photo, i won't take a photo but if they 'see' the photo i took of others they really want i take a photo of them too...it gives a relaxed feel and most of the times it's great fun, no preasure and they keep calling others too....I let them hold the camera and many times they look in the lens instead of in the viewer, but i have to watch how they hold it and i tell ye that camera gets dirty when kids want to hold it, they try to turn the settings and all, a few times i looked at shots i'd taken and where blurry are overexposed etc. than i realized they where turning all the buttons, so i had to keep my eye on that one too.
Salamago, Bodi tribe.

The Bodi men perform ceremonial death procession and will keep the body of the woman safe for 3 days. After this, the tribe will gather together and eat the body as a sign of respect, and to ensure passing into the next world. The missionaries have failed to ban this practice.

Miss Bichai, Hana village,South Ethiopia. The Bodi (Me'en) are a very nice tribe, rather shy, and the market is a wondeful one.Many tribes like Batchas, Mursi, and even Surma come to this place to exchange honey, tobacco, etc...
Theu use a razor blad to do the haircut, most of the times, old, and do it very quick, without any hesitation!

The Me'en or Bodi people live around Omo river in south Ethiopia. Originally they were pastoralists, but due to the tse-tse fly killing their animals, they now have become agriculturalists. Traditionally men walk naked. The typical ornament for ladies is a kind of plug which is inserted in the chin, just below the lower lip.

Les Me'en ou Bodi vivent autour du fleuve Omo dans le sud de l'Ethiopie. Ils etaient pasteurs à l'origine, mais la mouche tse tse a fait des ravages sur eur beratil, et depuis ils se sont reconvertis dans l'agriculture.Traditionnellment, les hommes se deplacent nus ou simplement recouverts d'une couverture. les femmes portent des peux d'animaux ou des tissus legers qui laissent un sein sortir. Les femmes portent en general un petit bijou labial.

Bodi girls bringing fresh milk from their cows in a little shop. This is the only revenue they will get for the day. Ethiopia is one of the poorest country in the world, even if they have great ressources. Many african countries start to rent their lands to foreign countries. South Korea stars to come in Ethiopia and Madagascar. We saw huge fields ruled by koreans.

Man from Bodi tribe( Me'en ), in Hana ,early morning, South Ethiopia.
Bodi dress is very simple. The women wear goatskins tied at the waist and shoulder, while men like this one fasten a strip of cotton or bark-cloth around their waist. That's all folks!

On Beret road to market, South Ethiopia. The Bodi girls are very nice, the men tend to be fat, as they have a big feast where the biggest are the most appreciated! Nice and so sweet compared to Mursi women who are so aggressive!

People in south Ethiopia must walk for hours and hours to reach the weekly markets, where they'll exchange stuff or buy some. This little Bodi tribe boy was going to sell some milk, and will come back with tobacco or honey.
The picture was taken in the early morning, and he was freezing, all nude with just a blanket to wear.
