This young member of the Bagobo tribe was left on her own by her mother as she enjoys the attention given to her during our visit at their tribal village.

The Bagobo are proud people with proto Malayan features. While many are in economically depressed circumstances, a great number have attained a considerable degree of self-sufficiency. Most of the Bagobo have suffered dislocation from the loss of their ancestral lands and the effects of modern day insurgency.

Taken at a tribal village of the Bagobo tribe in Kapatagan, Davao del Sur, Philippines.

    What an incredible shot! The contrast of the blue dress against the dirt road just jumps at you. The catch lights that twinkle in her eyes and the single tear on her cheek just makes this photo for me. Beautiful!
