Ethiopian women with their wonderfully diverse head adornment. From my 2013 trip to Omo Valley.
I love different styles of personal adornment. These women of the Karen tribe make fanciful headgear that reminds me of western wedding veils.
Maria belongs to the Karen tribe originally from Burma but now living in northern Thailand.
I first met Maria in 2012 at her village near Chiang Mia Thailand.
She was very shy but showed me how she created beautiful weavings for sale.
In 2013, when we met again, I brought the photo I took and had her pose with it.
By the time I returned in 2015, she was quite the salesperson and I bought seven of her beautiful woven scarves.
Just went to a fabulous art event last night in Santa Rosa held in a 4000 ft warehouse. Such a talented, enthusiastic group of artists. I interview a number of them and will be putting out a video on youtube next weekend on the event. Here is their instagram if you want to learn more about it @outoforderexhibit
Thank you to all the participants for such a wonderful exhibit.
Here is my video of the event “Out of Order”
