Artist's Description

Takpala, Alor Island, Indonesia.

After a village greeting of war whoops and brandished spears, a warrior decked out in his hand-dyed, hand-woven ikat cloth smiled at our group as we entered the village of Takpala to observe the villagers’ all-important drum (moko) ceremony. The warrior’s beaming smile demonstrates his penchant for chewing betel nut which leaves mouths a ghastly red hue.

Canon 10D, Canon 100-400mm lens, shutter 1/90, f/6.7, focal length 100mm, ISO 400.
