About the artist

Based in Copenhagen, Ken Hermann possesses a natural urge to explore photography and world alike. He has traveled extensively, from secluded regions of India and Ethiopia to modern metropolises like New York. From every location, no matter how small or large, Hermann draws energy and inspiration; exploration of people, culture, and life is a central facet to his work, which is full of texture, volume, and atmosphere. From these experiences, he applies a cosmpolitan aesthetic to his commercial and editorial work. He is the winner of Hasselblad Masters 2012 for his City Surfer work.

About the book

The lower valley of the Omo River in south-western Ethiopia is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and one of the most beautiful regions of Africa. Known as the cradle of mankind, the area is attractive not only for its particular landscape, but also for the diverse culture of its inhabitants. The banks of the river have for centuries been the homeland of the tribes of the Surma, Mursi or Hamar, whose expressive body-painting and rituals are unique throughout the world. Ken Hermann has visited the region several times. In his impressive photography, he portrays the self- confident Omo people, depicting their way of life and their traditions, but also the incomparable beauty of the valley and its flora and fauna. Hermann’s book is a homage to a region whose existence has for years been threatened by a dam project of the Ethiopian government, since this will permanently alter the delicate balance of the eco-system of the Omo – a last photographic image of a fascinating, archaic world. The Danish journalist Suzette Frovin provides an introductory text to accompany his images, which describes the history, importance and current development of the Omo Valley.
