Photographer Tommy Hafalla has spent 30 years documenting the response of indigenous peoples to modernity. Portraying the life and traditions of the ethnolinguistic groups of the Cordillera region in the Philippines, these rare photographs show a surviving, precolonial culture whose way of life and rituals are hardly known outside of the region. The book’s title translates literally as “home village”, and it is a word used widely there to refer to one’s place of origin. Hafalla presents 74 black-and-white photographs of an ethnographic nature – portraits, rituals, material culture, landscapes, and everyday tasks – captioned from the point of view of the people themselves.
