Photographer Michele Westmorland has a passion for the culture of Melanesia – a region of the Pacific Ocean that includes the countries of the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
Her photographic adventures and assignments inspired Michele to take a deep dive into the customs, history and art of this part of the world. And eight years ago, it inspired her to lead her own expedition and plant the seeds for a documentary film, exhibition and book: Headhunt Revisited.
Watch the project’s Kickstarter video:
We are thrilled to be a small part of the creative team’s efforts. Our bags – including the DryZone 200 backpack, part of our waterproof series – were used on the expedition eight years ago and Michele uses Lowepro for her gear today.
If you have a passion for preserving culture, think about making a pledge to the Kickstarter campaign.
