Photographer's Note

In Lamalera village, on the island of Lembata (close to East of Flores), fishermen are proud people. But when you kindly ask authorization before taking any picture, you find immediately a great cooperation with people smiling and calling friends and family to show them the small image on the back of your camera.

This man was a little bit shy, in his corner, and I talked with him (with hands because they don't talk English and I don't talk Indonesian) for some minutes about his children and catch of the day. He's got such a look straight in mine... When I told him that I would be grateful if I could take a picture of him, he called his wife (a very shy but smiling old woman) and looked straight in the lense !

Such a power in the eyes...
