21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

I took this photograph in a cow camp of the Surma etinia in the Omo Valley of southern Ethiopia. These children leave their home for 4 months to accompany their parents with their livestock to look for areas with greener pastures. Every 10 days they change location once the cattle have finished with the fresh grass.
