Portraits of traditionally and historically dressed individuals who traveled a long way to celebrate Christmas in Lalibela, Ethiopia.
This collection of portraits was taken in Lalibela, Ethiopia. I took these pictures in one of the biggest markets in the city of Lalibela. As a fashion designer and photographer, I found people that visually caught my attention. I wanted to show colorful and stylish people in different ages. Basically, I was looking for fashion inspiration in the area, because people wear their best clothes when they go to the market.
