Over a 60-year period (1935 - 1994) the research of the Frobenius Institute specialized on Southern Ethiopia. The focus of its outstanding scientists - amongst others A. E. Jensen, Eike Haberland and Ulrich Braukämper - centred on the regions of Konso, South Omo, Sidamo, Wolayta, Dizi and Hadiya.
In addition to the enormous amount of ethnographic material that was collected back then 15,000 photos were taken from the 1930s to the mid-1970s. This photographic documentation reveals the very special interest in Southern Ethiopia.
The photographs are available via the image database.
