Description
Across the sands of time, Ethiopia has embodied fantasy and intrigue. It is a diverse and ever-changing mosaic of culture, with a geography ranging from the lowlands of the semi-desert to the mountainous peaks of the highlands. Ethiopia’s history is rich: it has been a supporter of Christianity for the Crusaders in the Middle Ages, a symbol of resistance to European colonization in the late 19th century, and, most recently, a recipient of aid due to its extreme poverty. Ethiopian Highlands offers a striking look into this world of contrasts. As magnificent frescoes, these vibrant, intimate images captured by Lizy Manola, whose Greek nationality connects her implicitly to Ethiopia’s past, bring us to the very heart of this ancient land. Ethiopian Highlands unearths the myths of the country whose three-thousand-year-old civilization is seen by many as the birthplace of humanity.
