For one decade Jane Baldwin has visited Ethiopia, Africa, documenting the lives of Kara women living on the Omo River through photography, voice recordings and video. Baldwin is especially focused on bringing their voices to the world after witnessing the imperiled ecosystem and endangered livelihood of these women due to the construction of dams and other development policies.

"Working behind a medium format Hasselblad, the relationship between the artist and subject is unbroken, forming a cross-cultural bridge of human understanding. The direct gaze of each woman exhibits a transparency of spirit, both vulnerable and of tremendous strength."
