Stranger to Stranger

I traveled to Ethiopia as a non-African visitor to document the fascinating culture, custom and people. As I was taking photos in the countryside, I soon realized that I also became the focus of attention, especially for the children in villages. In various places, I was mostly treated as curiosity, with kids staring at my skin, hair, complexion and way of behaving. During my photography assignment, kids often giggled, made faces at me, tried to hold my hand, and were bewildered at my photography gears from an entirely different world.
