The photographer: Anna Skacel of Sacramento
Behind the lens: This photograph was taken in the Omo Valley in Ethiopia in November 2015, where the Surma tribe members decorate themselves in the most creative ways. It took three days of solid driving by Land Cruiser to get there. There were no hotels or stores to be seen, which meant we had to camp. Unfortunately, our time was cut short because of tribal tensions after two people were killed on our third night there by a neighboring tribe.
