'Worbasha village in Omo region, Ethiopia - January 7, 2008: Hamar people during the bull jumping ceremony, they are sitting under a roof made of mud, wood and straw – the roof offers shade during the three days of the ceremony. The bull jumping ceremony is an initiation rite in which young men have to run naked four times across the back of a row of cattle. If they could complete this without faltering they are called a man and are qualified to marry, own cattle and have children. The whole festival means several days of feasting and drinking sorghum beer and ritual coffee out of calabashes which can be seen in the picture. The Hamar (also Hamer) are semi-nomadic pastoralists and are living in the southwest of Ethiopia, in the lower Omo River valley. Up to now the Hamar are virtually untouched by the modern world, in their villages there are no schools or electricity.'
