B&WEuropeFeaturedStoryEthiopia – Change in the Valley by Matilda Temperley

The fate of the Omo Valley was sealed in 2006 when, upstream of the valley’s arterial Omo river, the Ethiopian government began constructing the ‘Pride of Ethiopia’

The fate of the Omo Valley was sealed in 2006 when, upstream of the valley’s arterial Omo river, the Ethiopian government began constructing the ‘Pride of Ethiopia’: the highly ambitious and controversial Gibe III hydroelectric dam.

As well as allowing for large-scale commercial farming through irrigated agriculture, Gibe III stands to make Ethiopia a major energy exporter. Since its inception the dam has been controversial.

Gibe III began to produce power in October 2015. It has been described as a potential humanitarian disaster for the estimated 500,000 people who live along the Omo River, and around its terminal Lake Turkana.The potential outcomes of the dam have also been likened to one of the world’s worst ecological disasters; the shrinking of the Aral Sea. This is because the agriculture associated with the dam is expected to considerably decrease the river flow and therefore the volume of Kenya’s Lake Turkana, the largest desert lake in the world. In addition, the increase in lake salinity and the decrease in the nutrient-rich annual floods are likely to cause food shortages which will increase the risk of armed inter-ethnic conflict over grazing land. Because changing weather patterns often cause drought and starvation, it is clear that even a small change in the environment could have catastrophic impacts here.

OMO – CHANGE IN THE VALLEY

This book illustrates the beauty and diversity of the people living in the Omo Valley, as well as bringing into focus the threat to their way of life. Driven by a government keen to encourage multinational, industrialised farming the Valley’s inhabitants are being displaced.

Commercial farms combined with the new hydroelectric dam on the Omo River will have a potentially devastating impact on the ecology of both Ethiopia’s Omo Valley and Kenya’s Lake Turkana Basin. This striking collection of images is captioned with words from the subjects and is a stark reminder of the casualties and complexities that we face in the modern world. [Official Website]

    wow These are fabulous beautiful images!! With photography like this not being shown in museums they are obviously not doing their job opening the public’s eyes to what is out there.. Shame on museums and most galleries for playing it so damn safe!! AIPAD has become a bore! After looking at these and other images on this website I cannot believe how withholding the photo gallery world is! Shame on them! Thank you Ms.Temperley for this outstandingly beautiful portraits!
