Through my research I came across the Vanity of Man exhibition, I really liked the aesthetic and layout of the publication created using bright bold images to make the work stand out. I also really like the setting within the gallery which showed some really interesting full shot images with spot lights which really attracts the audience to the images.
BrittonBritton has worked with this fabulous project together with our dear friend Nicho Södling, the photographer, from the beginning. The projects consists of a vast suite of classic mid format celluloid film portraits of tribes people in the Omo Valley in southwest Ethiopia, near the Sudanese border, a grim and unforgiving, unaccessible roadless area which Claes Britton has also visited, on a river expedition back in 1988. To date, selections of the prints have been exhibited in Borås, Stockholm, Landskrona and Halmstad here in Sweden. We have also produced a book dummy. The project is still in process. It will be concluded after Nicho has conducted his third and expedition to the Omo Valley in the fall of 2012.
