Photographer's Note

Humanity, culture and tradition...

While menfolk were out tending their farms, this generations of 'Manggarai' extended families happily gathered for a photo shoot in a heavily shaded doorway of their two hundred year old traditional cone shaped
house in Todo village, West Manggarai district. Located at 1200 elevation, this remote village is tucked in beautiful lush mountain greenery in a fresh crisp cool air. They are predominantly Catholic, being the dominant ethnic group in central highland of Western Flores, rich in culture and a great majority of them still practice traditional way of life influenced by animistic belief following in the steps of their forefathers.

Their laid back way of life and tradition remain unaffected, unconcerned by the passage of time at least for now...
