Portraits from Papua New Guinea, 2001

I travelled to Papua New Guinea back in August 2001 and witnessed the spectacular tribal gathering at the Mt Hagen Sing Sing, an annual festival held in the highlands. I took these photographs with my Nikon FM (I forgot what lens I used) on slide.

Frozen boots on the Chadar trek

The Chadar trek is the coldest trek I have done in the Himalayas or anywhere for that matter. My boots were frozen solid and I had to keep moving in order to keep my toes warm. The locals wore cheap gumboots and managed in the -25c degree temperatures.

Trekking in Ladakh in winter at around -25c. Do you know what is feels like to stand in a place like this? I do. And that is why I return again and again and again; despite the cold, despite the suffering; despite the terrain; despite everything.
