Irian Jaya 1991
In 1991 we visited Irian Jaya and made a short trekking tour around Wamena, in the center of this beautiful country.
I scanned some of my negatives and decided to publish these images in black & white. The colours of the originals are somewhat faded and I like the B&W images better anyway.
To be honest, I was always a bit reluctant to show these images because the local people were performing their act for us (two tourists with two local guides from the tiny village). But when I saw a movie about the famous photographer Sebastião Salgado (one of my all time favourites), I realised that he had paid some money too. My images do not have the level of this famous photographer, but perhaps still good enough to show on this website.
