Photographer's Note

People in Mamasa, Sulawesi Selatan, Indonesia, have an old tradition to put the dead body of their beloved family on a chair for 3 days before they buried. Here, after a long-tired driving 12 hours from Makassar (the capital city of Sulawesi Selatan), and hike up 12 km to the mountain (2100m above sea level), i met a family who mourned of lost of their mother. The entire friend and family cried histeric for hours of their lost. Stay next behind the death, will remainded them that she will stay watch the rest of her entire family, at least for the next 3 days.
