    • The tattoos are tā moko; a cultural practice of Maori and other East Polynesian cultures. I met the man on a city street and he wanted me to photograph him. He thought I’d be interested because of the moko, but I thought he had such interesting eyes. That’s part of the reason I posted a b&w edit of the shot — so the moko didn’t draw attention from his expression.

  1. Wow, there’s a lot going on there. Made me want to break into a haka…if I knew one. Maybe just stick out my tongue and try to look intimidating? 🙂 If I met this man, I’d feel as if I wanted to stare at his face to take it all in but I wouldn’t because I’d feel rude.
