In pictures: Ethiopia's forgotten archive

An exhibition of previously unseen photographs from Ethiopia between 1963 and 1982 is opening in London as the country marks its millennium celebrations.

They were taken by Shemelis Desta who was the official court photographer for Emperor Haile Selassie - pictured here in Trinity Cathedral, Addis Ababa.

It is the ordination of a patriarch – kissing the emperor’s hand – into Ethiopia’s Orthodox Church.
