portraits by sergio carbajo, sergey agapov and hans silvester (click pic) of some of the eight tribes of the lower omo valley in southern ethiopia, land that now has been leased to a gold mining company as well as multinational companies which plan to plant biofuels and cash crops. the land and its people are further threatened by the construction of a massive hydro electric dam on the omo river.
the ethiopian government has begun the forcible removal these pastoral, semi nomadic tribes, massacring the beyahola village in december of last year. those who oppose the theft of their land are routinely beaten and thrown in jail. there have been numerous reports of rape and even killings of tribal people by the military, who patrol the region to guard the construction and plantation workers.

"CHANGING TIME II"
Those fungi are beyond this world.
A few days ago in a parking lot in Lisbon wheelchair users and volunteers occupied all the available Non-Handicap spaces to make a point to able-bodied motorists what it is like to have “their” parking places unavailable to them.
On every wheelchair various notes were left like: "be right back", "it only takes a moment", "I’m get something here", etc.
This!I actually call out almost every able bodied person stealing handicap spots. Your convenience is not more important than another persons needs. Get this trough your skulls people.
Fortunes is an experimental comedy-art project that portrays a collection of domestic rituals, highlighting the monotony of repetitive daily routines.
It’s a super dope study on perception, ultimately demonstrating how doing something long enough can literally drive you mad.
