A few weeks ago I had the privilege of travelling to Ethiopia to do some documentary photography work for a local Charity based in Randalstown.
My knowledge of Ethiopia had been informed and influenced by the media and I expected there to be mainly deserts. However the route from Addis Ababa to Shashamene revealed a green and mountainous landscape.
These are a few of my initial photographs from that journey. Parts of Shashamene are quite developed, but lie alongside muddy streets and impoverished housing.

Over the next few weeks I’ll post further photographs from the trip, painting a picture of various aspects of life in Ethiopia.
