Beauté des traces sur le corps

Curiosités de Titam

Le photographe Vicente Pamparo est allé à la rencontre du peuple Karo (Éthiopie). Il y a vu des hommes et des femmes qui parent leurs corps de craie et d’ocre… Que ce soit pour séduire, ou encore faire peur, en tout cas se donner confiance. De délicats motifs ornent les corps des hommes et des femmes, et les singularise.

Insight: Photographer Vicente Pamparo visited the tribe to capture their way of life on the river bank
Les enfants se peignent aussi le corps, pour s’identifier au clan notamment.

Men, women and children from the Karo in Ethiopia paint their faces and bodies with white chalkThey also adorn themselves in colourful beadsFace mask: The markings are an important part of festivities and ceremonies within the tribeFor the men, the body paint is meant to make them look more attractive and courageousRed ochre is used to colour their hairThe men carry weapons to guard their cattleWeapons also enhance their statusWelcoming: Vicente found the tribe to be welcoming and generous during his stayThe Karo people decorate their face and bodies to celebrate important festivities and for purely aesthetic reasonsPiercings and self-inflicted scars are also common ways to enhance their appearance

Au-delà des peintures corporelles, les Karo pratiquent la scarification et les piercings. Ceci symbolise leur courage.

The tribe raise their own goatsWhen it comes to clothing, the Karo look is minimal. The men, woman and children usually just wear a loin skincloth

Le peuple Karo compte environ 1000 individus, qui vivent d’agriculture, de pêche, et d’élevage de chèvres.

About elisabethpaultakeuchi

J'aimais la littérature. Aujourd'hui je laisse sur la toile des petits bouts de ci, des petits bouts de ça. Je reste sur les traces des auteurs passés, et je trace mes propres méridiens. Pas sûre quand même qu'ils soient assez longs pour vous y perdre.
