Sehin Tewabe
A third-year accounting student, Sehin, 20, was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Growing up in a large family, She was always the designated cameraman in the household. Sehin taught herself the basics of photography and enjoys taking pictures on the streets. She believes there is so much more in street photography because it captures people’s facial expressions or their sense of state of mind at a specific moment and time.
“The place where all things meet,’ Megenagna looks a bit like a pile of a highway spaghetti. Sehin’s work features this overcrowded junction of Addis Ababa, which is a major intersection in the eastern side of the city. His pictures tell stories of angry drivers curs¬ing and honking their horns uncontrollably, gawking street vendors ambling, pedestrians who seem to be in a constant state of hurry and onlookers who are just there soaking up all the commotion. Sehin captures the organized chaos that is Megenagna and colorfully depicts the pace of the neighborhood.
