Sapa, in Northern Vietnam near the Chinese border, differs from the rest of the country because of its mountainous character and its diverse ethnic background.
The region is home to many tribes such as H’mong and Dzao, which migrated from China centuries ago. Some of them still don't speak Vietnamese.
We met the grandmother of these children during a trekking expedition on a rainy day. We asked, with the help of our guide, for permission to visit the house.
The mother of the children was weaving clothes under the single lamp of the house. I took pictures of her children by using the light coming from the garden.
Cropped, increased contrast and saturation.

This is a very strong shot where emotion is all over the place
Very well thought with all these areas in the shadow and only one eye, but what an eye, popping out

A great and strong work. Very well thought and very professionally executed. The background blur and the focus only on eyes just tells a thousand words.
Have a nice Time

this is a great double portrait. The light and the strong contrasts are fantastic and the expressions of the two kids really engrossing. Excellent!
