Photographer's Note

In this age of broadband & iphones, it's an age of old tradition that never change.....

This close up quick shot from the same village, a glimpse into a part of this farmer's life just the sort of image that helps bring a greater understanding of the life of others in far away places and the unchanged culture of Nepal. Village life has not changed much here as I have mentioned earlier, people work with their hands and muscle power, no big tractors or machines to help with the daily tasks in the fields but on the plus point there is a strong sense of community spirit and people help each other.

This is the same in all the remote villages in Asia and a common sight but it's also remarkable nonetheless considering the distances she carries daily. However I find it interesting to see this method of carrying product despite the health hazard to their backs and necks they may suffer in the long term. It has a charm of its own regardless of that, something different so far removed form our modern way of life.

I love shooting the gentle, very humane insight into the lives of others and my perception of comfort is quite shattered in the process. Hopefully the image speaks for itself.

But sometimes I wonder who is happier.....
