Photographer's Note

Thanaka paste is worn on the skin of women, children and some men, and is used for skin protection in Myanmar. It also seems to be worn for decoration with everyone having different patterns on their faces. Made from a tree root and water, this tradition is very popular and quite unique with the majority of people wearing it every day.
