While some of them are stunning, they raise questions for me about consent and representation. My first thought on seeing Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher's work was whether the pair would get away with photographing nude westerners and selling their photos online? I wonder whether the photographers told their subjects that their images would be published, and sold, and in what form. Would they give permission if they knew what would become of their photos? I asked my colleagues at Africa on the Blog what they thought.

Nude photographs of the Dinka: art or exploitation? | World news | The Guardian
Last fall I had the chance to fulfill my one of my long-held dreams to visit the Omo valley and spend time with its remaining tribes. The Omo valley is in the Southern part of Ethiopia and the lack of roads and infrastructure in the area makes it very difficult to reach and to explore. Staying at two different camps over two weeks, seven of us were able to meet with four of the sixteen or so different tribal groups found in the region. We spent time with members of the Surma also called Suri tribe, the Kara Karo tribe and their archenemies the Nyagathom and finally we had a brief but colorful encounter with the Hamar, one of the largest tribal groups in the area. Two weeks was obviously not enough time to understand the richness of these vanishing cultures, but I got a few insights and a few photos that I thought were worth sharing.
