Fotógrafo alemão percorre os lugares mais remotos da África

O deserto montanhoso da Etiópia fica em uma das áreas mais remotas da África. A vida nesta região pouco mudou nos últimos séculos. Nada lá nos faz lembrar o mundo moderno em que vivemos.

Ao longo de sete anos, o foto-documentarista alemão Mario Gerth viajou pelas regiões mais remotas do continente africano em busca de povos com tradições e costumes diferentes das sociedades ocidentais.

Em uma de suas jornadas, Mario percorreu mais de 500 km a pé e no lombo de um burro entre Lalibela e as Montanhas Simien. No caminho encontrou com monges orando com Bíblias de 600 anos e agricultores e pastores, cujos métodos não mudaram em milhares de anos.

Para o fotógrafo alemão, conhecer a região foi como fazer uma viagem pelos livros do Bíblia. Nesta série de fotos em preto e branco, Mário capta cenas como sendo uma reminiscência do Antigo Testamento.

Lalibela é conhecida  por suas igrejas monolíticas esculpidas na rocha.
