    An amazing collection of photos of the Mentawai people of Indonesia.

    Beautiful portraits, but I get this feeling that they are somewhat detached from reality. The storyseems to have got lost somewhere on the way to the internet.

    Jorgen,

    I agree, especially if you look at a blog post on his site which shows some quite large lights. But still, the photos, as well as some of his street shots, are impressive. Apparently for a very young photographer who appears to have only recently gotten his own apartment.

    Steve

    Steve,
    Good thing that I didn't read his blog etc. before I commented on the photos. Might have coloured my views. As said before, his photos are beautiful, although they lack a bit of variation, but that can probably be said for most of us. His self esteem on the other hand, seems to be filled with pure hydrogen, and may self ignite any moment

    I suppose you're allowed to be like that when you're a successful twentysomething

    I think this kid is super talented. I wonder what he'll be coming up with in 20 years.
