Last weekend we were so proud to have the official launch of our book UNBROKEN. It has become such a special document of portraits and life stories of homeless elderly in Addis Abeba. Because they have come from all over Ethiopia it is also an interesting story about the history of this beautiful country seen from many different perspectives. How brave were these elderly to share their faces and stories with us, knowing they would have to process their rekindled memories out and alone on the streets at night. All proceeds of the book go to the Elderly People Support Project where at least they can eat a warm meal, shower and receive simple medical care. For a year we worked on this book with dear friends Corin van Poppel, Odette Sprangers and Johan Martinelle and it would not be this beautiful without the design expertise of Karin Steiner and Marianne Stichter. Thank you brother Isayas and Tesfu for translating during the hours and hours of interviews, which were often difficult and tearful. We truly hope this book will make you look at them with different eyes. To order the book PM or more information on the project just sent us a message!
