Photographer's Note

Another human landscape - nothing glamour or pretty face, just a snap away of a native 'Abui' tribal woman at Takpala traditional village tucked in cool mountainous region of Alor Island. Just happened to catch the truest picture of this individual as she glanced up - a low key from single low light source that I loved so much in portraiture.

A red smiley is a result of constant betel chewing - a long standing tradition and way of life, and a bit of a dose of reality although it may not be the most pleasant of facial features - to TE standard I'm afraid.

Indonesia is such a unique diverse maritime nation coloured by over 380 ethnic groups with over 580 dialects spanning over three-time-zone.
