I took these photos over the summer of 2015 while exploring my hometown, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. What struck me, and what I hope to convey in this series, is a diversity of textures. As in many parts of the world, life in Addis Ababa has all types of textures – from the smooth surface of fabric to the coarse wrinkles of skin, from the glossiness of water to the graininess of a dirt path. These textures and experiences exist together, and are presented here as such.
