Travel documentary pictures are intended only to show atmosphere of the places, I would not call them as my portfolio.
My favourites pictures are in section to pphoto - mainly Photography of people from their ordinary everyday life.
Iban tribe. Ibans were renowned for practising headhunting and tribal/territorial expansion and had a fearsome reputation as a strong and successful warring tribe in ancient times. From what I know it was the strongest tribe on Borneo. here yu may see little bit of their everyday life today.
A river in the middle of Borneo in Sarawak. no swimming, there are crocodiles !
A woman at the corridor of the long-house - without any specific description. She was just sitting with a subtile smile, slightly looking at me, and me observing her as part of perceiving the culture and the energy around. I could only guess what was in her mind, but I guess that was not important. I found more important was to capture vibrations and to understand whether she feels comfortable or not. My vibrations I understood of course.
