Dive into an exotic new culture and understand how different tribes live through this beautifully moving tribal photography by Vincente Pamparo.

The stunning photos of the Karo Tribe in Ethiopia show us a unique people who have stuck with their age-old traditions of painting their faces and bodies with chalk for different cultural and religious ceremonies. The genuine depiction of this tribe in Africa's Great Rift Valley documents the changes happening in the tribe due to globalization and modernization.

Pamparo lived among the tribe in the Omo Valley for a week and was able to authentically capture how they lived, farmed, communicated and what their secret chalk mix was made of (the chalk is mixed with charcoal, yellow rock and red iron ore for color) for his tribal photography series.
