Lapun Man bilong Tufi Cultural Sing Sing

A new sun has risen and a new year is heralded. I do not plan on completing this year and I have moved my boundaries again, no longer the chapters but I will visit the people of Papua New Guinea and you will see a collection of portraiture taken from a 4 year period. I will post new shots and lots of fillers, but they will all be about the people that live in this amazing country.

A new dawn.

Photo taken at Tufi, Oro Province Dec 27th 2013. Birds of Paradise and Parrot feathers, shell money necklace and flowers in his ear. Woollen modern bilum on his shoulder. (Province 1/22)
Sounds exciting! Glad you're staying for a little while. He is quite handsome and I looove his jewelery!

Ah! So you are finally bringing your project to a close this year? I always wondered how you could keep up so many albums and your additional projects. At least we know you will be around a bit longer with project X and we can still see what you are up to. I think I will be quite sad when you are finally done with us!
January 2nd, 2014  
This is amazing I love seeing your images from there :)
January 2nd, 2014  
you are rather great at capturing people's emotion, be it candid or posed. it stems from your genuine interest in them, not just to take a photo. that's what makes your photographs so appealing, jason.
January 2nd, 2014  
@megstorey - I'm thinking there maybe one other project that I may have space/time for.... thinking out loud I am.

@michelleyoung - Thanks Michelle, hope you enjoy this part-year of portraits.

@summerfield - and I think it is why I no longer just take shots of random people... I now often chat to people and think "should have taken a photo..." oh well oh well.

Love your portraits and stories. Happy new year to you and yours! Do as you wish, she said magnanimously, as long as you don't go away.
January 3rd, 2014  
I wondered when I noticed all the people. I am honored and deeply touched, Jason. You are a prince!!
January 3rd, 2014  
@riverlandphotos - that's gonna be tricky...

@grammyn - awww thank you Katy. (so glad to see you around again)
January 3rd, 2014  
I will be sorry to see you go although somehow I don't think you'l be going far. I've always loved your portraits so will enjoy your finale.

Love the headdress on this guy.

@kjarn - Thanks Kathy A, maybe I can share this year's dedication with you and @grammyn ???
January 4th, 2014  
I think @grammyn deserves it all on her own.
January 4th, 2014  
@kjarn - I'll reserve one or two shots for you though Kathy... not many people on this site get a saying named after them, but every now and then I have read "I've just been Kathy'd".

;)

Hi Jason, you have me intrigued as to what you will be up to next. 365 just has this pull that keeps bringing me back, it's hard to cut the ties completely. I love this guys head dress.
January 20th, 2014  
@bella_ss - today is the one year anniversary of being here again in PNG. Maybe the halfway mark? Good to see you here again!
January 21st, 2014  
Wotcha! I have no idea how I have got this far behind... a record even for me I think! I saw this in the news today and thought of you http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-25885519
!!!!
January 27th, 2014  
There's something so fragile and strong and timeless in this shot, love it. I wonder how many many of my favs are your shots :)
Don't have enough tea to spend as long as I'd like on each shot I've missed but I promise I'll look
January 27th, 2014
