Brian MacFarlane is a Carnival Band leader in Trinidad. In recent his band has won many awards. It's popularity lies in the fact that his costumes are rooted in the style of traditional Trinidadian carnival, whereas as some of the other bands tend to stick to beads, bras and feathers.
I took this photo in October 2010 at the launch of MacFarlane's Band for 2011 entitled "Humanity - Circle of Life." This is the male costume for the section entitled "Prayer."
