Asmat, Papua

Ndormom!

Ndormom is the Asmat language for all kinds of greetings. My love for Asmat, Papua is endless. One of the many unique gems that belongs to Indonesia lies at the far east of Indonesia. The pure energy, nature engaging and friendly people are the special magnet that captured my heart. The local people’s unbelievable creativity are beyond amazing.
