Photographer's Note

Well, this time it's not a landscape, but a portrait.

This one means a lot to me. Me and my friends were in the middle of a dangerous trip to Tutuala, a spectacular place with stunning coral reefs, when we met for a brief moment this man in Baucau. The expression in his face condensates so much about East-Timor people that I cannot put in words... so I can just look at the photo and remember. I hope it "speaks" for itself, so you can have a glimpse of what I feel.

Next time I'll upload a portrait of a young child. They're the future of this young nation and they have a very valuable legacy to uphold.

PS: please remember that East-Timor was part of Portugal until 1975, so most of their people have a "look" that is a mix of european and asian.
