OMO CHANGE – Fausto Podavini

Exhibition From February 22 to March 14 | Maha Bandoola Park

Opening | 22 February 2020

By Fausto Podavini

“Omo Change” documents the story of big Chinese and European projects in the Omo Valley, Ethiopia. Started in 2011 by Italian photographer Fausto Podavini, this project is a reflexion on the deep contradictions of so called ‘development’ investments: the valley is being turned into a pool of resources for the rest of the country and the world but not for its own population. It puts at risk the delicate balance between humans and their environment that has persisted for hundreds of years.
