Israeli travel enthusiast Yoni Blau usually takes his Fujifilm X100 compact camera when he goes off on vacation. But for a recent expedition to Ethiopia, to photograph the tribes of the Omo Valley, he decided to use a much larger camera – the Fujifilm GFX 50R medium format . Here he recounts his experiences, and shares his beautiful images of this amazing location…

'It took 3 days of travel from Addis Ababa to reach the Omo. First, we flew to Jimma and from there, we continued by car,' Yoni explains. "Moving from cities, to towns, to villages, to…nowhere. On the final day of driving, we soon saw the last of paved roads. We chugged along on improvised dirt paths, obstructed by cow herds and muddy river streams. Our destination? Deep in the jungle with the Suri village spiraling a web around us in all directions.
