In 2014, the Smithsonian accepted the Omo: Expressions of a People series into its National Museum of African Art’s photographic archives. Now housed in the Eliot Elisofon Photographic Archives, this tremendous honor has fulfilled Doggett’s hope for the series to be used as a means of supporting the ongoing study of arts, cultures and history of Africa. Accessible to museums, scholars, non-profits, and educators from around the world, the Omo: Expressions of a People series will have a lasting impact for years to come.
