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.
After working 25 years as a photographer, Tom Jacobi became art director of the German magazine "Stern". During his time there, he also developed the monthly photo magazine "View", was publisher of the quarterly photo book "Stern Photography" and became a member of the German Art Directors Club. After leaving the publishing house Gruner+Jahr, he returned to his roots and photographs his own art projects.
