Joni Kabana: The Salt Workers of Afar

August 4, 2018 - September 28, 2018

First Friday Reception: Friday September 7th, 6-8pm

Discover the extraordinary world of Ethiopian salt workers who tirelessly extract salt from the Dankil Depression located in the Afar region of northern Ethiopia, a region sanctioned as being “the hottest place on earth.” The series explores their extraction process, the surrounding landscape, their tools and attire, as well as some of the weather-worn faces of these devoted men.

Joni Kabana is a visual artist and communications specialist. She can be found at home or in remote villages across the globe working on magazine, NGO, corporate advertisement and personal projects, trying to stretch her beliefs and imagination as far as they will go.
