'Worbasha village in Omo region, Ethiopia - January 7, 2008: A group of Hamar women doing a ceremonial dance as part of the bull jumping ceremony. Skin and hair of the women is coloured with a mixture of red soil and butter. On the day of the ceremony the female relatives of the initiate assemble in the afternoon and demand to be whipped by the young men of the clan – they are singing and dancing and at the end of each dance they beg to be whipped on their backs. The lashing leads to raw and open wounds and the scars are visible for the whole life, but the Hamar woman are proud of these scars.'
