Sumba Foundation Book

As, Chief Photographer for The Sumba Foundation Book, I produced a collection of raw images depicting the rich history and culture of Sumba. There is nowhere I’ve experienced like Sumba in the world. The landscape is breathtaking and the indigenous culture is alive. This place is one of very few places that really does exceed as a perfect destination.

The traditional ceremonies performed by people of Sumba adhere to the original religion called Marapu. The Pasola, a Spear Battle by horsemen warrior is one of the most incredible traditional festivals in Sumba. Pasola is ‘at war’ conducted by two groups of riding horsemen.

Theses images transport you to another place and time to experience the fascinating culture and dramatic scenery of Sumba through my lens. I want to thank the Nihiwatu Resort for its support of the Sumba community and the Sumba Foundation who work together to positively impact the lives of the Sumbanese.
