Photography exhibition 'Soutoura' in Ethiopia

From the 25th November to 16th December 2011 at the University of Addis Ababa
Exposición fotográfica 'Soutoura' en Etiopía

The Soutoura project consists of an exhibit of 30 photographs of African women in different situations and tasks of their everyday life. The photographs have been taken by the photographer Ángel Luis Aldai in his journey through Mali, Niger, Ghana, and the Ivory Coast.

Aldai's portraits of African women are situated in the current of expanding the concept of beauty to non-Eurocentric canons, and they reflect this beauty, both aesthetic and internal, in the faces and attitudes of anonymous women.

Angel Luis Aldai is a recognised Canarian photographer with more than ten completed exhibits, he has received various awards and has also edited several books with his work.

This exhibition reaches  Addis Ababa as part of Seminars organised by UN Women (United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women), the African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) with the aim of examining and debating the Progress of the World’s Women's report. The main theme will be women's access to justice and will draw attention to the goals and challenges facing Ethiopian women in particular and African women in general.

The exhibition, which has its own catalogue, now comes to Ethiopia and will be able to be visited from the 25th November to the 16th December  at the University of Addis Ababa.
