"Pasola - A Sumbanese Sporting Tradition #1"
Pasola, a war ritual on horseback, played to celebrate the rice planting season. Sumba, Indonesia

Biography: As a persistent travel photographer my focus is on Oriental culture- and biodiversity, most recently vital animism, dogmas and rituals of the indigenous people of Indonesia. The project shall enrich cultural dialogues - crossing borders – in showing and sharing insights. Therefore it is also deeply in touch with unique ways of cultural expression and likes to contribute to their individual preservation.
