Inspired by their environment of wild trees, exotic flowers and lush vegetation the tribes in the Omo Valley, use colorful make-up of bright yellows, startling whites and rich earth-reds created from the clay soil, to paint each others bodies motivated by the shear fun of creating and showing off to other members of the tribe. The suri take this a step further by adding flamboyant, artistic head pieces made from nature. They make bold decisions about their dress and colorful accessories, to become a walking body of art. For generations these tribes have been shielded from the modern world in a place that is still raw, natural, and timeless. However, change is happening quickly in this region, which is impacting their traditional clothing, body painting and way of life. The west side of the river, home to the Suri, is more fragile due the government leasing of land in surrounding areas; access to this region could be closed off in the near future.
