This documentary photographed a traditional culture of tattooing as the meaning of the existence of Dayak iban tribe's identity, which in visual tattoos of the tribe iban was inspired from the nature in which they settled in Kalimantan, such as plants and animals. One of them in this photo is a young man who has a tattoo "eggplant flowers", which is inspired by the eggplant flower, in the tradition of "eggplant flower tattoo" must be owned by every tribe of iban when it is considered mature and also as a binding kinship for every dayak iban Who settled in the country of indonesia or malaysia. Its existence has evolved to follow the development of modern culture flexibly, for example tribe dayak iban residing in indonesia country do not need to use passport if want to travel to malaysia country through land border on kalimantan island only by showing tato "flower eggplant" as identity of dayak tribe iban Got the privileged access to travel from both countries, because from the dayak tribe Dayak Iban has been trusted to participate in the war in the independence of both countries, especially on the island of Borneo, the trust continues to exist today. This is certainly a phenomenon when the existence of a traditional culture of a community can follow flexibly with modern culture such as "statehood".
This photo became a memory in the worship of a traditional community (tribe) in the creation of visual works and also its existence up to now. When I photographed this photo I understand that my existence has a distance with the community of tribe dayak iban, I am only a guest in that community and nothing more, it becomes a good approach for me in reflecting it into a photo.
