The Torajan of Tana Toraja

this work follows the unusual funeral ceremony from Tana Toraja, Sulawesi, Indonesia. I spent two weeks documenting the ceremonies of the Torajan's which involve illegal cock fighting, illegal gambling and ritual animal slaughter as part of an ancient cultural tradition. This essay has been featured in Foto8 and the Northern Corespondent WARNING: contains graphic images of animal slaughter
