“Nagnabakoro Bibime” – a portrait of an Ethiopian woman from the Mursi tribe. From the series ‘Interior’ – “In 2016, I took a global ancestry DNA test to discover my origins. From the result, I decided to travel to the interior of the countries where my ancestors came from. The Project started in 2015 and brought me to Ethiopia and Kenya and is still in progress. Deep down, the base of the project is to respect differences, and learn to see people the same way as you see yourself.”
