Photographer's Note

The Nagas are people living in the states of Arunachal, Assam, Manipur and above all in Nagaland.
Some of them are living in Burma.
The Konyaks are distinction Nagas, centering in the north of Nagaland, mostly in Mon district.
They have 6 Anges (Chiefs, kings) controlling all Konyak villages.
This picture was taken in the konyak village of Shangyu.
Just old men are still tattooed, and in the following series I’ll bring some of those warriors’ faces.
At the past I Uploaded 4 pictures of Konyaks from my visit on Dec 2006.
One chief died since then and the other is dying now.
a short movie that I filmed back then from other parts of Nagaland, I Uploaded in
