Photographer's Note

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.

This lady escorted us during the whole trekking we had in the countryside of Sapa, sometimes under the rain, with her baby-girl on her back.

The little one seemed quite amused with the only toy she had at that time: a rice stick.

Cropped, applied sepia, gradual toning and local burn.
