Faces of Bougainville: Deep in Thought

Jessie T. Ponce Photography

“Deep in Thought”; Autonomous Region of Bougainville; December 2012

I was part of a team that was consulting remote villages in Bougainville about community problems and the potential solutions.  While I was engaged in the discussions, I was also interested on the non-verbal responses of the villagers.  In this photo, I captured a group of women and a man as they mentally processed a question that was raised.
