Photographer's Note

a burmese woman in mandalay.
both burmese men and women are very conscious about their beauty. they put this paste (i've forgotten the name) on their cheeks. it's supposed to be good for their skin. also a lot of them wear these straw hats, which are different from vietnamese hats.
this is a very different portrait from me, while taking about this one i was thinking of david alan harvey's photograph. in my other "essence of burma" portraits i was thinking of steve mccurry.
so anyway i was just experimenting with the composition here.
