Faces of Bougainville: I See Me!

Jessie T. Ponce Photography

“I See Me!”, Buka, Autonomous Region of Bougainville, December 2012

No, the face is not mine.  He’s a man I met on the street in Buka who volunteered to be photographed.  And yes, that’s me reflected on his mirrorized sunglasses.  I just thought that this is the appropriate image to start a short series of portraits I took in Bougainville because somehow I see a part of me in all the portraits I take.
