Faraway eyes

Osa Johnson (1894-1953) married her husband Martin while she was still a teenager. They left their Kansas home for the South Sea islands, North Borneo, East Malaysia and Africa, filming a record of their journeys exploring wildlife, meeting tribesmen and gathering valuable geographic information. In the field, Martin was the principal photographer, while Osa was guard, hunter and pilot.
