Aman Ipai honoured in Vienna

A portrait of Aman Ipai, one of the Mentawai tribe of Indonesia, has been selected for the Vienna International Photo Awards exhibition to be held in Austria this month. Awarded an Honorary Mention in the People & Portrait Photography category, the monochromatic portrait was taken in the doorway of Aman Ipai's uma (longhouse), using only natural light to frame his pose. Capturing his unique body art and trusting presence, it also plays on the concept of individuality within a societal group.
