I was inspired by the plight of the people who live in an almost unreachable, to the average traveller, part of Africa known as the Omo Valley. However the future of these tribes lies in the balance. A massive hydro-electric dam, Gibe III, has now been built on the Omo river in order to support vast commercial plantations that are forcing the tribes from their land. Salini Costruttori, an Italian company, started construction work on the dam at the end of 2006, and it is now complete. The government is now planning to building Gibe IV and Gibe V. This will destroy a fragile environment and the livelihoods of the tribes, which are closely linked to the river and its annual flood." I appropriated the images from the photographer Hans Silvester to make the point, ''Whose art is it anyway?" His photographs are showing the tribes ART – The work is about the ownership of beauty and identity.
