When Emperor Haile Selassie was finally buried in Addis Ababa in 2000, twenty-five years after his death, only a few European journalists and reporters were there to witness it. Renowned Magnum photographer Peter Marlow was one of them. The 21 photographs in this exhibition document an extraordinary event and its colourful participants, from former soldiers to priests and dignitaries of the Eastern Orthodox Church, dressed in bright robes.
