Photos from 2003-2007
I lived in Jayapura/West-Papua from 2003-2007. My interest about Papuan culture brought me there, and I attended Anthropology classes at Cenderawasih University in Jayapura. Apart from spending a lot of time in Jayapura, that I in fact liked, I also did a lot of research on different people in the interior of West Papua.
