A tiring day

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Barbara Parkins

This picture is one of the Mamusi Tribe from the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, a very isolated tribe from the world. This mother walked for 12 hours over mountainous terrain to bring her child to see me as she was named after me the year before. A noble people.

Location: Head of Sepic River, Western Highlands PNG
