Thank you to everyone who turned up to our opening celebration last Sunday...
"The Lost Tribe of the Omo Valley" - Solo Show by Nadine Saacks
The show was opened by Nadine's son - Joshua Saacks...
I had the privilege of travelling with Nadine on both of her trips. What we saw was truly astounding and shocking at times. But most of the time, I was just trying to keep up.
The work you see here today is the culmination of 100’s of hours of planning, many days in the car through bumpy roads, nights slept in a rain drench tent, running from gunfire and many more hours in post-production, where the team meticulously selected and edited the photos that you see here today.
The tribes are shrinking and will not be around for much longer. Many of the less remote tribes have already begun to integrate into modern society. Numbers are dwindling. In the future, this work will play an important role in documenting the world that once was, and give us an insight into the birthplace of man.
The artwork around us is a true gift from a talented artist. And we thank you all for being here in support.
