Drai wara (Sepik, Papua NG, 2015)


In 2015, the dry season came earlier on middle Sepik (river in Papua New Guinea). The drought reduced the wide lakes, which cover Blak Wara area, and the channels which connect it with the Sepik, to small ponds.

One day I saw women gathering with enthusiasm at the creek, to catch fish in a dry water channel. I took my camera and join the party. After a bath in muddy water, many left home with the baskets empty. But it seemed that nothing could change their good mood.
