Wonders of Ethiopia Cultural Exhibition

Erer Gate in Harar Ethiopia

I’m very pleased to announce that my photography is now being exhibited at the United Nations Office in Geneva as part of the “Wonders of Ethiopia” cultural exhibition! The exhibition highlights Ethiopia’s cultural diversity through photographs of the country’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I provided my work related to these sites as well as photographs demonstrating Ethiopia’s diverse cultural beauty.

The exhibition runs until July 18. If you are in Geneva while the exhibition is open, please stop in for a visit. You can find details regarding the specific location of the exhibition here.

I would like to sincerely thank the Permanent Mission of Ethiopia to the United Nations Office in Geneva and UNESCO for this opportunity.

      Thanks, Lauren! You can see several of the photos being exhibited in my Harar posts, as its walled city is one of Ethiopia’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

      Congratulations! Love photography and your picture captures the busy, vibrant place I imagine Ethiopia is. Would love to see the exhibit maybe it will visit further venues in the future too.

    Serious congratulations, that is amazing! Not going to be in Geneva I’m afraid, but hope the exhibition goes well for you.

      Thank you, Michael – I saw some of the other photographs being exhibited and was really impressed. Should be a very nice exhibit.

    What an incredible honour to be featured in a photo exhibition in the UN palace! I love your Ethiopia photography and would love to visit. I would, if it ran for a bit longer. I’m off to Madagascar in a couple of weeks!

    • Dave June 29, 2014, 6:01 pm

      Thanks, Margherita! I can’t wait to see the Madagascar photos, I’m sure they’re going to be incredible.

    Wow, that’s awesome, I wish I could get to Geneva before July 18th but we won’t even be back in Europe before the 20th. Congratulations Dave!

      Thank you, Brianna. I was contacted by someone from UNESCO who had seen my blog.

    Excellent Dave, well done! I’ll be in Geneva later in the summer, but after the exhibit ends, unfortunately.

      Thanks Bob, very excited about this!

    Congratulations! I like a lot your posts on Ethiopia, before reading them I think my knowledge about the country was limited to what you hear from rastafarians as their “Promised Land” :) And your photos are real good!

  • Sarah June 30, 2014, 8:26 pm

    Waw! Congratulations! I wish I could ‘drop by’ Geneva and check it out! Will it be viewable on line at some point?

  • Claudia July 1, 2014, 9:16 am

    WOW, Geneva! I wish I could visit the exhibition in person!

    Congratulations Dave on your photography exhibit with the Geneva UN -“Wonders of Ethiopia”! Your fantastic blog cooksipgo is a virtual tour guide of Ethiopia. You have represented the country so beautifully and your photographs and writings have a distinct poetic quality. Well done! I look forward to all your next entries with cooksipgo!

    Hi Dave

    This is perfect. Congratulations. You must feel so very proud :-) As you mentioned in an earlier comment UNESCO became interested in your work through your blog. It is great to see that a mixture of passion, an eye for detail and hard work pay off.

  • Calli July 4, 2014, 7:05 pm

    Congratulations Dave! This is very exciting! Wish we were in the area to stop in and admire your photos, sadly we’ll have to stick to the online version :)

  • Danielle July 20, 2014, 11:57 pm

    Congratulations Dave! Your photos are amazing – I so enjoy your ability to capture local food, drink and culture with sincere humility and curiosity. Please keep them coming!!
