Another shot of old woman from Dayak Kenyah tribe. I took this shot during my trip to East Kalimantan (Borneo) a couple weeks ago. Women in this tribe have higher social status if they have longer ear lobes. They also consider prettier... just a complete different concept about beauty in this modern world.
