Photographer's Note

This was taken in a mountain village in Northern Luzon up in the Mt. Province of the Philippines during a bodong (peace pact) between lowlanders and the Cordillera native peoples. The territory where this picture was taken was considered hostile to the Marcos government. While this was going on, a military operation was occurring in the next mountain range.

I was trying to take a 'Madonna and child' photograph of the grandmother and her grandchild but she was quick to avoid me. But the picture didn't go to waste I think.

This photo was scanned from a slide and finished in Photoshop with autolevel.
