A group of loggers living in a jungle camp downriver from Sawa Village in the Asmat, a large, steamy hot tidal swamp in Irian Jaya, Indonesia. This group is logging the forest with hand axes, dragging the huge hardwood logs from deep in the forest over a long path of smaller cross logs. When they get to the river the logs are lashed together in rafts and floated down the river to sell to traders for cash or outboard boat motors.
