Photos I Wish I Had Taken

Photos I Wish I Had Taken: Mitchell Kanashkevich

Look at the light!  That stare! The combination is mesmerizing isn’t it?

I just came upon Mitchell Kanashkevich’s work an hour or so before penning this post, and I am so glad I did. The portfolio, “Everyday Living with the Hamer Tribe”  from which this photo was plucked is, in my opinion, especially nice. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go through all of his work, but there’s not doubt that I will be returning to his site as soon as my time frees up.

According to Kanashkevich:

“The Hamers are one of the majority tribes in Ethiopia‘s ethnically diverse Omo Valley. They are proud and self-reliant, depending only on nature, their animals and their land for survival. Virtually everything about their world has a strong connection to the world of their ancestors, very little has been accepted from the outside.”

If you have time, I highly recommend that you check out the rest of his work.

P.S.: I also noticed that he had some interesting ebooks available for sale: one on using light creatively, and the other on post processing. I haven’t bought them but I am seriously considering it.

If anyone has purchased these ebooks before and has an opinion, please let me know in the comments below. I would love to know more. If you’re interested in knowing what I think about the books should I buy them, let me know below as well, and I’ll make sure to give you a holler.
