The Penan People Of BorneoThe Island of Borneo are home to numerous indigenous people, some have vanished, most have been moved to long house villages supported by Christian missionaries, and a minute number still survives in the vast rainforest, albeit struggling.The Penan tribe are one of those minority tribes, and being nomadic in nature, their place ofexistence are never permanent. Some 200-300 of them still hold steadfast to their traditionallifestyle and cultures, struggling for survival in the forests in north-western coastal areas of Sarawak, oblivious to the rapidly changing world outside.My portfolio comprised portraitures of these 200-300 Penans from the perspective of theirliving surroundings as background to close-ups of their anguish, helplessness, frustration anddesperation, more so on their unyielding determination to preserve their traditional habitatand culture.
