Black Beauty

by Tom Jacobi

Boy or Girl? I photographed this beautiful human being on a "Sing Sing" in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. "Sing Sing" is the traditional gathering of a few tribes or villages where people arrive painted and decorated to show their distinct culture. By the way: it's a girl.
