Photographer's Note

This is the third in a series of photos from the Papua New Guinea "Bung wan taim" (Which means all together) sing sing in 1971 - the sing sing to celebrate self government.
I am not sure where in PNG this group was from but their outfits are all traditional so it means they were probably from well away from a major centre.
It seems a long time ago but the first Chief Minister (Michael Somare)of PNG back then is now Prime Minister (for the third or fourth time!)
The photo is from a scanned slide which was a little discoloured (bluish) so I had to de-saturate it a bit and then some work with brightness and contrast. I've tried to present it as naturally as possible.
