It’s great to be in Papua New Guinea again – this time shooting the Melanesian Cultural Festival over the next 10 days. It’s a once every four years event, this year being hosted by PNG.
Here’s a Mekeo performer from the Central Province of PNG I shot (below).
I did the press conference for my photographic exhibition today, with TV, newspapers and radio all turning up to hear me on my soapbox talking about the erosion of traditional cultures throughout the region. I’ll spend tomorrow shooting the festival before officially unveiling the exhibition at the national gallery the day after.
