[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The surroundings of Palumeu are hided in the untouched rainforest in one of the most Southernest contactable spots of Surinam. In the village Palumeu approximately 200 Indians live. There are two different tribes, the Trio's and Wajana's. In spite of difference in language these tribes live together peacefully.
To the head of the community the captain stands. With some assistents (basja's) he controls the village.

Hello my dear Jen,

Congratulations and TFS,

Hello, Jen -
Wonderful portrait with a lot of character. You captured the features of his face and hands so well. The handle of the wheelchair(?) sticking up behind his left shoulder is intriguing. Good colors and textures. Two small nits: (1) the background is a bit blown out with overexposure - could be brought down in post processing; and (2) I wish I could see the feathers sticking up from the headband, which are cut off. Regardless, a really nice image.
