Portrait of a Papuan Grandma

This grandmother was sitting on the porch of the house she lives in with her son and grandchildren. Her face and pose caught my attention as I walked through the village. I never got a chance to talk to her, but after I took this photo she smiled and turned away as if shy. Her son was pleased that I took her photo and proudly explained that this was his mother. This photo was taken in Papua, Indonesia.
