A male performer wears an elaborate, shark headdress outdoors
A colour image of a group of dancing men in an outdoor performance space in the Solomon Islands. They are wearing traditional, ceremonial dress and elaborate, intricately designed headdresses. They are holding long, wooden poles. In the foreground stands a man in profile whose headdress features a large shark made of coarse brown fabric, with white trim and teeth. In the background a group of onlookers sit on, or lean against a fence with white wooden railings, in the shade of a stand of trees. This image was shot while filming Solomon Islands 1979
