1. Kombai hunter against giant leaf in the highland of central Irian Jaya, Indonesia. There are about 4,000 or so members of the Kombai, most of whom live in tree houses to protect themselves from the heat, wild animals, mosquitos and enemy tribes. The Kombai are hunter gatherers, hunting a wide range of prey including the imposing cassowary, and wild boar. It seems that, even today, cannibalism is still carried out by the Kombai. It appears to be a form of tribal punishment against men identified as witches by the community, who are killed and eaten. #kombai #papua #irianjaya #indonesia #onassignment #kodak #kodakfilm #asmat #korowai #hunter (at Central Irian Jaya, Indonesia.)

  3. Northern Mongolia, Khovsgol Aimag. The Tsaatan are a small community of reindeer herders living in the rugged terrain of the Taiga in northern Mongolia. Only about 40 Tsaatan families remain to this day, living the traditional way. The Taiga in Winter can be particularly fierce and cold. I happened to be traveling in that area during Winter a few years ago, sleeping in reindeer tents like the one in this picture. Temperatures can go as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius. During that time, I had to sleep and keep my photo equipment and film rolls in my sleeping bag to prevent everything from freezing. #mongolia #taiga #freezing #reindeers #tsaatan #khovsgol #khovsgolaimag #kodak #kodakfilm #onassignment (at Khovsgol Aimag, Northern Mongolia)

  15. As a photographer, I spend countless hours in airplanes criss-crossing the planet on different assignments. Oceans, cities, deserts, islands, mountain ranges, always observing from above which brings a different perspective on our planet. This is a picture shot above the Eastern Himalayas mountain range while flying to Lhasa in Tibet. #tibet #onassignment #mountainrange #heaven #latergram
