Description

"Portrait of a Carabao near Ubistondo" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Carabao. As Hill wrote to Martha, 'Water buffalo are used for all farm power. They are called carabao by the people here. Those beasts please me immensely.' Slow, steady, and ubiquitous, Hill recalled that these large animals were docile when handled by their regular owners whom they recognized by the scent of coconut oil in their hair. To strangers whose scent they did not recognize, they were wary and potentially dangerous." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
