120 years old!?! sent on February 14, 2013 (8:37) by Memy. 53 comments, 8667 views.

,

Di incontri belli, divertenti, toccanti, strani..... nei miei viaggi ne ho fatti tanti ma se ce n'è sato uno che mi ha sopreso e lasciato davvero interdetto è stato quello con un vecchio in villaggio di ex tagliatori di teste Konyak-Naga. Ci stavamo dirigendo in auto nella zona del villaggio dove la guida sapeva che abitava un centenario con i tatuaggi più belli del Nagaland quando in uno spiazzo,a fianco di una casa, in una luce quasi abbagliante, abbiamo visto una figura ricurva, quasi scheletrica, ripiegata su se stessa, mezzo nudo con addosso solo un paio di pantaloni corti imbrattati e troppo larghi per quel mucchio di ossa.... Aveva lo sguardo fisso ed sembrava non curarsi del nostro arrivo: completamente ricoperto di polvere e sul viso aveva delle macchie scure di non si cosa miste ad altre bianche che sembravano calce o gesso e che gli incrostavano anche le ciglia!!! Una visione davvero scioccante: dava l' impressione di un vecchio uscito da un lager comletamente abbandonato a se stesso che mi ha dato un senso di abbandono e di solitudine che poche volte mi è capitato di avvertire e, non riuscendo a capire, sono rimasto davvero interdetto... Ma poi sono spuntati dei bambini che potevano essere i bis bis nipoti e poco dopo dalla long house è uscita un donna anziana ( probabilmente la figlia o la moglie ) che ha cercato di coprirlo prima con una panno e poi con la giacca tra le proteste silenziose del vecchio che evidentemente voleva godersi un sole piuttosto caldo.. Parlando, la nostra guida ha scoperto che l' uomo aveva 120 anni !!! o così dicevano i suoi familiari e quelli del villaggio......

I really like this a lot, the shades 'purple mixed with pink and' superb .. as always compliment the stories we tell, I do not know whether to believe, 120 years Tantini and see it does not even show 80 ;-) If it were true , this comes to 140 easily, and 'thin and old, but her eyes still seem full of vita.C' is a small stain on the left, maybe dirty lens.
Congratulations, Claudio.wow hello!

Hello Claudio.
thanks
Obviously I can not know how old he was but the Naga, unlike Mishmi count the years ... and they were really sure of the 'age ...
Besides, if the old with beautiful tattoos (Spiderman. .. www.juzaphoto.com/me.php?pg=28816&l=it # fot313198) had really 100 years, there is that he had 120 ...
Seeing him live I can tell you that we all thought he could have easily at least a hundred years, even if it is true that the eyes, despite staring and a bit 'lost (I do not think we saw a lot ..) seemed more alive than other clouded by cataracts.
More than thin, as you can probably guess from the knee, was skeletal ...
It seemed the perfect subject for the bn however, after visto both versions, I decided to post the color just because it was a crime to lose skin tones ...
There was a very strong light and more light shone: the stain that you see on the left maybe we should remove it but it is not a patch of the sensor is the 'effect of dust illuminated by the sun ..

Considearando that man more 'old world and' died in 122 years in 1997 (France), you would have found the second most 'old! :-D:-D:-D

Good for him! :-P:-P:-P
Joking aside, I never seriously thought that he might have actually that 'despite their age security in repeat but surely had many.
Being born on the first of the 900 between the Naga headhunters and have arrived today, whatever its precise age is not a trivial matter.
In all ways the 'Age is just a number struck me as it was and the conditions in which we found it.

Shocking! I watched it for 10 minutes and the thing that comes up to him and a portrait of a Mexican mummy I've seen recently ... Maybe he deserved wider shot that showed the rest of the body.

Thanks Johniz and Pisolomau

In this photo I wanted to concentrate 'attention to the face that I think with all the scale is really unique .. But of course I have other full-length shots that nnonostante the greatest difficulty in handling the light and eliminate distracting elements I do not mind at all and I believe that soon prorpio that later will post one ....

Thanks Andrea,
I must say that I really like taking pictures of people as well as I really like amdare my favorite subjects during my travels ..

This photo struck me very much. I looked at several times the face of this man. It does not matter how old he is in reality, but your story and your photos have certainly enhanced this singular man.

I agree with you, the 'age is just a number and what matters is the face of this man so crusty and as special as it had never happened to see ....
