Captured deep in the wild jungles of Papua New Guinea, risking life and limb and camera to the distinct possibility of ending up speared and as the main course for dinner. Fierce warriors of the jungle, ready to pounce, muscles honed through thousands of years of perfect harmonious living in and of nature. To boldly go where no fair skinned Nomad Photographer has ventured before.
Of course, in reality, these are the friendliest people you can imagine and were part of a great visit to the Korfure Village. We were hit by a tropical downpour the equivalent of standing under a fire hydrant; and the only risk to life and limbs and cameras came from the incredible amount of water from the sky. Quite a few cameras drowned here. Let us not dwell on the fact that True North Mark fired away smiling with his Canon 1Ds while Christian and I could do nothing but spit out ‘bastard’ as we protected our cameras from death by rainfall. At the end, the rain eased and I captured this as we were leaving the village. I believe I have shown a snapshot of this image earlier, an image I really love and an image that deserves to be seen as a large print on a large wall somewhere. This is jungle warriors of Korfure Village:
I extend Christian Fletcher much gratitude for the look of this image. As I sat next to him working on this image he showed me the one and only original TNFP workflow. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, TNFP! While everyone else can get the T-shirts from Christan’s new business venture, I have the actual That’s Not F#cking Possible Photoshop workflow! It certainly an awesome dark and moody feel to my already brilliant (of course hehe) image and it lifted the image quite a bit.
PS. I have been immortalised. Get yourself some Flembot merchandise from Christian’s shop. It’s the design with all the text. The Flembot coffee mug is a must have!
