We visited the Mersi (pronounced mercy) tribe in Ethiopian's Omo valley who are famous for their huge lip plates. This incredibly pretty young girl was clearly born with a cleft pallet and we wondered if that made her inherently so much more beautiful. She hasn't started her lip plate yet and just struck me how pretty she was. I've got so much better photo's of the tribe but I keep coming back to this one.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
