Holiday No.387 S/S 2021
The Ethiopia Issue
After a trip to Saint Petersburg, Holiday magazine heads for Ethiopia. Photographers Sean Thomas, Paul Kooiker, Matthieu Salvaing, Quentin de Briey, Krisztián Éder, Douglas Irvine and Oliver Hadlee Pearch offer unique visions of the land of 13 months of sunshine and its people, while Karim Sadli captures the elegance of the Ethiopian model Liya Kebede, founder of the fashion foundation Lemlem.
On the writing front, French novelist Oscar Coop-Phane goes on his first-very memorable-journey to the Horn of Africa; Ethiopian writer Gabriella Ghermandi writes about her return to a country she left when she was 14; Nicolas Zeisler digs up the story of Lucy's discovery; Bridget Cleary investigates the links between Ethiopia and the Rastafaris; Jean-Christophe Collin tells us about the extraordinary Dibaba family; Mariam Senna Asfa Wossen, the granddaughter of Emperor Haile Selassie, walks us down memory lane; and American writer Thomas Chatterton Williams meets Olivier Rousteing for a deep conversation about race, origins and more.
