"Surma Tribe," by Ed Asmus



Ethiopia, home of the oldest humanoid fossil #AL-288, aka "Lucy", is known as the "Cradle of Mankind". Ed Asmus' adventurous journey to the Omo Valley in southwestern Ethiopia included an armed bodyguard, a Land Cruiser stuck in the mud, and a rapid departure from one village due to tribal conflicts.












In the exhibition, One World, Many Faces, Rachel Rosenthal presents images of people from across the 60 countries she has had the great fortune to visit. Rosenthal’s goal is to illuminate the soul within, connect us to another's culture and locale, and make human nature tangible.
