Wonderful capture of this Mursi woman and her baby. Love the culture you have captured with the lip plate. I agree with Barbara that you could produce an interesting book between your descriptions and photographs. Thank you for sharing your lovely work.

The portraits you take of these african women are really outstanding...!! And the description is very detailed and fascinating..so as this photograph with the lip plate..you could compil all this wonders and beautiful explanations in a very exciting book..^_^

Interesting ! V

Wow fantastic photo! You have captured this culture wonderfully!

I remember seeing a photograph of a tribeswoman with a lip plate for the first time when I was a kid. It was explained to me that the first lip plates were used as a deterrent to slave hunters, in the hopes that the disfigurement would cause them to be bypassed. Now they are used as adornment and status as the sidebar explains. Awesome and important portrait, Liudmila! v

Great image....wow, really awesome V

Luidmila what an exploration and journey of a world so different you have been on. I am impressed with your captures of a people and a place far in miles from mine. This capture is shocking in so many ways, the child suckling on the mothers breast, with a lip plate that tells her worth is mind boggling for me. Your work is excellent, keep doing it, it strikes at the core of beautiful and yet some aspects I cannot look, it is so foreign. This is why it is important.

very interesting photo. description is a must read.
