These images are a cross section of the diversity of life and culture in Ethiopia. The tribes of the Omo valley, the Afar of the Danakil desert and the Orthodox christians of the highlands. 

To capture people and landscapes and the interactions between them in the light of a world in transition is to encapsulate an inimitable moment, which will never again materialise. Trevor’s ‘take’ as a geographer photographer!

Born in the City of Derry but he has lived most of my life outside the bounds of Ireland in England, Singapore, Togo, Italy, Ethiopia and Brazil. Recently he returned to Ireland (Donegal). Trevor’s photography, together with travel, have become two of his life’s passions.He studied Geography at University and taught it in international schools. His photography focuses on culture, landscapes and wildlife; images which reflect a spatial and temporal journey through life and which try to convey a need to live in a more sustainable world. He seeks the moment and the light in whatever context I find himself and endeavours to use my photographic acumen to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
