Bereavement in Kanak Custom - New Caledonia - August 2013 The young man lived in the tribe in the mountain of the north of new caledonia. The death came sundenly. In the morning of the death, he felt seek but it wasn't possible to go to the community clinic, far from several kilometers from the tribes. The photo as been took few minutes after the death in his own room. I was there to interview his grand father for the Kanak Custom, but I arrived just when the young men died. I stayed in the familly for one week to share the mourning.

Location: New Caledonia - Hienghene
