“I want to make Africa digestible in a different way.” Growing up in the First World, but hailing from Ethiopia, the artist has had an urge to find her roots and change the image of the country of her ancestral lineage. She has created photographic works that show the dichotomy of her own life, and the dichotomy that exists in the life that people live in Ethiopia. She has since founded DESTA(Developing and Educating Society Through Art) and Addis Foto Fest, Ethiopia’s first biennial exhibition of photography.
