Photographer's Note

The other, is it me?

Taken in Can Cau, north-east of Bac Ha, a Flower Hmong tribe market where Flower Hmong girls meet Flower Hmong boys.

Not much to sell or buy, except the same Flower Hmong pattern clothes, more of a social meeting place where girls seem to take the lead over quite dumb Flower Hmong boys.

Makes me think a long time ago, TrekEarth was not even in Adam's mind, I once wanted to set an exhib with an old friend photographer, the name we chose was "The Other and the Same". That was about the illusion of otherness.
We didn't go all the way because we felt there were more difference between us two than with the subjects we photographied.

I found the way back to my home wet darkroom last weekend and enjoyed it, after a year long break. Felt a bit rusty but it's ok now. There's nothing like a good paper print... screens lie, paper doesn't... so, that's a scan of a paper print on Moersch warm VC paper.
