16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Mentawai tribe at the Kulukubuk waterfall at an Indonesian Island

Deep in the rain forests of Siberut in the Indonesian chain of the Mentawai Islands stay the ‘Mentawai’ tribe whom I had gone to photograph. One of the locations was this remote and beautiful untouched waterfall deep in the forest. I have captured the natives of this forest with the beauty of the place in this image which I wanted to do before this unknown area comes under the tourist onslaught.
