[film photography]

Working a few months in Horn of Africa, I had the chance to be invited to a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, a ritualised form of making and drinking coffee, only offered on a few occasions. My host was preparing the coffee and I asked permission to take a picture. As I set up my film camera, her friend sat quietly behind me just in front of the mirror and started watching her work.
