Little is known about tribes in remote regions of Ethiopia, but one photographer in Florida is working to change that through his work.

At the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, Hans Silvester's photographs, which were taken over the course of six years will be on display until April 10, according to Tampa Bay Online. The German native spent his time taking pictures of tribes in Omo Valley, Ethiopia, in an attempt to capture everyday life on the other side of the world.

"Natural Fashion: Art and the Body Photographs by Hans Silvester" will not only provide viewers with a glimpse into another culture, but a colorful perspective on rural Ethiopian life. Silvester incorporated African art composed of a wide range of colors, including vibrant orange, bright yellow and grassy green.

"I was fascinated by how human beings can have an instinct for beauty," curator Joanne Milani told the news source.

In honor of the grand opening of the exhibit, Silvester plans to fly in from New York to meet with visitors and discuss his work.

Silvester's pictures may inspire individuals to embark on careers in photography. Many people enter self-employment as photographers for the schedule flexibility, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
