Portrait of a lady from Mesa Island, Flores, Indonesia
Lady | Mesa Island, Flores, Indonesia

The portrait of this lady was taken while I was walking around Mesa Island, Flores, Indonesia, which has a population of around 1,500 people. Fresh water is not available on the island.

  1. What gorgeous colors! I am glad you are in a part of the world where darker skin tone is the norm and people dress with such colorful aplomb. Many Americans — most still of a pasty white complexion — would not risk such a thing (which is probably a blessing to all of us :)). Another winning portrait, Joshi. Your work in this vein consistently reminds me how beautiful the human face can be.
