奧莫河谷的改變
2011年 7月 24日至 2017年 11月 24日
在衣索比亞橫跨了奧莫河的吉貝三號大壩不僅影響了奧莫谷的住民,也影響了肯亞圖爾卡納湖(奧莫河注入此湖)沿岸的人民;沿著河谷居住的八個族群和大自然維持著巧妙的平衡,並仰賴奧莫河提供充足的食物來源。批評者指出大壩導致生物多樣性減少、圖爾卡納湖水位降低、每年隨河流自然氾濫而沉積的沃土減少,並使原住民流離失所。然而衣索比亞政府認為大壩提供了珍貴的水力發電能源,並能支持大規模農業所需的灌溉水源,而且大壩也會是觀光景點,因而反駁任何負面說法。攝影師到訪奧莫谷,主要是希望大眾能反思建設投資是如何危及人類與自然環境的平衡。

Omo Change
24 July 2011 - 24 November 2017
The Gibe III Dam across the Omo River in Ethiopia impacts not only people living along the Omo Valley, but those around Lake Turkana (into which the Omo empties) in Kenya. People of eight different ethnicities live along the valley in delicate balance with the environment, reliant on the river for food security. The Ethiopian government sees the dam as providing valuable hydroelectric power, water for large-scale agriculture, and as a tourist attraction, and disputes claims of negative environmental impact. Critics point to diminishing biodiversity, falling water levels in Lake Turkana, the reduction of fertile soil deposited by annual natural floods, and the displacement of traditional peoples. The photographer visited the Omo Valley with the aim of producing a meditation on how investments might put the human-environment balance at risk.
