My name is Terhas Berhe and I was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1987. During my early childhood, I traveled extensively with my family to many beautiful regions of Ethiopia. From those experiences I became enamored with the landscape and rich heritage that exist in and outside of the capital. After high school, I pursued and completed a Bachelor's degree in computer science in 2008 at St. Mary's College in Addis. It was during my undergraduate studies that I gradually realized that my interest lay primarily in the arts. I started taking workshops in theatre, film, painting, journalism, and photography. My study of the arts helped further my curiosity and interest in finding innovative ways to explore and document my community. I started my professional photographic work by volunteering with local and international NGOs on various children programs using art for rehabilitation. Today, I am a freelancer for NGOs like UNICEF, Zelaman Production, Europa union and Fekat Circus. I have also exhibited my work at the Goethe Institute and Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and the New School for Photography in Berlin, Germany. I have found my creative muse through photography and film and look forward to sharing my vision of new and powerful images and stories of Ethiopia.
