Tribal Beauty


The Karo tribe in Ethiopia has been one of my favorites to visit and is one of the friendliest. They loved spending time with us foreigners and having their picture taken. They even suggested ideas and locations for the shot.

The Karo live along the Omo River, which was the only tribe we visited that lived on the water. I guess it’s true what they say – people are happier that live on the water. When you took their photo they would always get a serious face but when you showed them their picture on the back of the camera their eyes would light up and they would get the biggest smiles.

All artwork is offered as a limited edition. Rodney carefully selects each image and chooses a number of prints to make available for each image. This edition size is shared across all prints of an image. For example, if an edition is set at 25 prints there will never be more than 25 prints of that image (regardless of print size) so each individual work will retain its value over time.


As with most fine art, as an edition sells the prices increase. Later images in an edition will be priced higher.
