Photographer's Note

This shot was taken in the Virachay national Park North of Voen Sai in Cambodia. The boys were the children of my local guide, and as I was one of the first Westerners to pass through it took a while for them to become comfortable. The hill tribes of this area suffered terrible bombing during the Vietnam war but their isolation and lack of 'colourful' clothing should save them from the 'human safari' traffic inflicted on hill tribes in Thailand.
