Photographer's Note

The Shinbyu is a colourful but solemn ceremony passing the young boy through the rites of passage to novicehood, This young boy was waiting in turn to have his head shaved, a ritual performed by the head monk with a sharp razor, (no soap), a ritual where the boys are not suppose to cry, a ritual where only the parents can be present, therefore I cannot say whether this young boy with the mischievous eyes stood the test of courage or not.
