Photographer's Note

This is a close up portrait of an elderly, a graceful Tadjik lady from a rural village in Taxkorgan with her traditional colorful embroidered hat or 'kolta'. I was on the prowl for photo opportunities around her village and had observed her from a distance for she had the most wonderful facial features. I was lucky enough to have captured this image with full eye contact and exchanged smiles she seemed pleased, little bits of interaction like that make my travel very special and meaningful. She gave me a tremendous gift, her time, humanity, the most amazing eye contact and above all the opportunity to make a very special picture.
