Photographer's Note

When travelling in Asia, a trip to the market place can be an adventure in itself. You can see all the things they sell…frogs, snake, farm rats, bugs, bats and many more strange creatures that they eat, the sight, the smell can be overwhelmingly exciting or disgusting, and the most precious sometimes is the interaction between people.

This mother and her son, asked if we would like to buy anything? She went on to name the prices, “potatoes 200 kip per kilo, orange 500 per kilo, broccoli 600 per kilo...” Two big happy face and infectious laugh, PRICELESS. And Master Card not accepted. We ended up buying a couple of fruits from her as a token of appreciation for the brief encounter and the opportunity of such cheerful images.

I was too close to get the mother face completely for this shot, see workshop for another shot from a bit further back and a color version.
