Photographer's Note

Another photo that I took at the Papua New Guinea national Sing Sing to celebrate self government in 1971. The mudmen are from a village in the PNG highlands and during a tribal battle they were driven into the Asaro River where they became covered in a thick grey mud. When they came out of the river their pursuers became scared and ran away. Only a few members of the tribe are entitled to appear as mudmen.
The European people, especially the woman in the hat, provide almost a comic contrast.
Scanned from a slide.
