Photographer's Note

This shot was taken in the Mentawai Islands. We had chartered a yacht to explore the islands for 2 weeks. One day the first mate offered to take us to a nearby village in the runabout. We walked around and took some shots. The village was very, very poor and very remote. One of the most amazing trips I've ever done.

I've also made a video of this vilage and posted it on youtube. If you watch it you can see the old man and the child with the hoop at the end. Cut and paste this link in your browser:
