Karo boy

A shy young Karo boy hides behind the rough fence of an animal enclosure in his village on the banks of the Lower Omo River in southern Ethiopia. The Karo predominantly practice flood retreat cultivation, growing a variety of crops. They also fish and breed cattle and goats. Their way of live is threatened by the construction of a hydroelectric dam which will regulate the flow of the river.
