Addis Fine Art is pleased to announce, From Our Perspective: Young Ethiopian Photographers Changing the Gaze, a dual exhibition by dynamic young photographers Girma Berta and Eyerusalem Jiregna at Addis Fine Art Gallery in Addis Ababa, from 9 April - 25 May 2019.
Ethiopia is home to some of the fastest rates of development in the world and a changing political landscape. Two young local artists, Girma Berta (b. 1990) and Eyerusalem Jirenga (b. 1993) aim to tell its story through their photography. They represent the new voices in contemporary Ethiopian photography, pushing the boundaries of the medium and questioning the definitions of documentary photography. Their works have been exhibited internationally and selected to adorn Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's new public and private offices.
