The Shamans of The Mentawai

Joey L, Cale Glendening, and Willem Isbrucker travel deep into the rainforests of Indonesia to document the culture of the dying Mentawai tribe. While watching this behind the scenes short documentary, one understands just how deep their friendship with the Shaman healers was. Joey L’s photographs are stunning, and I am completely impressed that he brought his entire light kit deep into the rainforest.

    I really like his photos- I just can’t believe he dragged a light kit through the rain forest.

    To answer your question- he is not an optimus guy.
