Photographer's Note

In the village of Ta Phin, north Vietnam you can meet people from Red Dzao hill tribe minority. We were invited to "have a smoke" with this old lady at her "house" ... so we tried :) It was actually a very dark place to take photos with a fireplace in the corner, no sunlight inside. The room for the whole family as well as for the storage of rice ...

The Red Dzao is one of the ethnic groups that live in the region. They are called Red Dzao because they always use red to decorate the clothes they wear. There are two curiosities about this tribe. The first is that you can know how rich a woman is by the size of her hat. the other is that the local canon of beauty says women have to shave their hair and eyebrows.
