I saw this shop the other month and I finally got around to stopping by and having a chat. I envisaged how I wanted to shoot the guys working and PP my shots to try and get a gritty hard look about them.

A few facts: there are 4 shops making coffins in Dili

It take about 2 hours to make one

Cost $100US

They make 4 a day, business is good...that is not good.

And amongst it all I found this lovely little girl. Her family owns and runs the workshop.

Um! Yeah? It could be cedar, though I am not sure as it is a local wood.

All I want to keep saying is keep posting, Crash. I want to see more! (And I'd also like to visit Dili, I have followed the unfortunate history of East Timor since -75. Is the country coming to a rest now?)

I see you finally were able to take the pictures of the coffin maker. I remember you talking about wanting to take pictures of him working in another post. #3 does it for me closely followed by #2, both images are a powerful capture. Great work Crash!
