Photographer's Note

The market at Turmi rassembles people from several neighboring tribes, mainly the Hammer. The Hammer are amongst the friendliest of the Southern Omo valley tribes, although the foreigner give me money syndrome is sill present.

The women are known for their mud-based hairstyling.

Another characteristic of the hammer is the very deep noise which they pronounce which sounds something like: "UUUIT UUUIT", almost bird-like.
