Ethiopian Old Man in Shashamene

In 2011 I had the opportunity of taking photographs for the charity Stand By Me in Guacamayal Colombi. This year a similar opportunity arose with a locally based Charity ‘Hope And A Future‘ visiting Shashamene in Ethiopia,  to raise awareness of living conditions and issues facing children.

I have spent some of my life in Africa, in Ivory Coast and Uganda, but never travelled in Ethiopia. It is astonishingly green and mountainous in places but found many similarities to other parts of Africa not least the poverty, the dirt, and the smiling kids. I spent most of my time documenting the charity’s work in three schools and the lives of children living the slum along the river bank in Shashamene. I did manage one photo of an old man. Much like Colombia their faces are lined with experience and character.

This photograph was taken just beside the entrance to a mud hut shot at ISO 1600, an aperture of f1.4 and a shutter speed of 1/45s.
