A 66 Kilometer highway built by a Chinese company and opened to public in 2014, connects Addis Ababa to Adama, in the south east of the Ethiopian Capital.
Numerous solar panels (feeding energy to various equipment like the electrical lighting of the bridges) installed on the side of the highway have since been vandalized by the residents but the abandoned huts of the guards still stand.
These about forty simple shelters and the rural landscape cut through by the highway, seem to me in complete contrast with this imported modern installation.
This series of photographs follows a straight line through the ever- evolving Ethiopian landscape as well as reflecting on some of the contradictions that come from modernism that follows the country.
Few months later, these huts were replaced by plastic cabins and solar panels were repaired.
