Photographer's Note

While trekking one late afternoon through a rainforested section of the Taman Negara called Seberang Ara, met a solitary hunter/forager looking for a wild tuber. He goes by the name "Hassan" from the Bateq Heb, an aboriginal ethnic indigenous within the Taman Negara or National Park in Pahang.

In this photo, a portrait work of him enjoying a smoke on his rest, with a view of the trail and forest he was coming through. Bateq Heb are pretty reserved and shy and would not look straight in the eyes when meeting or talking to strangers. They speak and understand very little Malay.
