Photographer's Note

This is a mother and child from the Acar tribe. They live in the mountains of northern Thailand and in Laos. They are descended from Tibetan peoples who migrated there centuries ago. The grow crops on the high slopes and sell jewelry etc to live. traditionally, of course, they grew opium poppies, but that has all gone now. They have their own language and their own very strong culture.
