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.

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 electric lamp of the house. I took pictures of her children by using the light coming from the garden.

Cropped, converted into b&w, increased sharpness and brightness, applied Neat Image and a few retouches.

Exif: ASA 1250, f/4.0, 1/25
