Michele Westmorland’s Headhunt Revisited on National Geographic News Watch

iLCP Fellow Michele Westmorland writes about her project Headhunt Revisited, which retraces Caroline Mytinger’s improbable journey to Melanesia in the 1920’s, then known as the land of headhunters, to paint portraits of the native islanders. 80 years later her paintings have inspired two contemporary artists, Michele and Papua New Guinean painter Jeffry Feeger, who motivated by Caroline’s art, have created their own modern interpretations of Melanesians. Headhunt Revisited illustrates with paintings, photography and filmmaking, that all forms of art are instrumental in communicating stories of culture and tradition.
