Portraits of PNG

The rich culture and costumes of Papua New Guinea have been snapped by crafty international cameras for decades. Have you ever wondered how many photos of Asaro mudmen, Huli wigmen, Malagan masks, Trobriand beauties, Hiri Queens [dot dot dot] might sit on mantel pieces and inside overflowing photo albums across the globe today?

Papua New Guinea puts on a spectacle for international tourists, but this local New Ireland camera tilter Old Plantation also captures people in their everyday scapes, reminding us of the stark beauty of our people and places.

We also hear a coffee table book is in the works!! Yay.
