Photographer's Note

This is a rare photo of one of the few surviving old and experienced Tai monks in the south of Yunnan writing in his native script.

The Tai are locally known as the 'Dai' minority, and their writing differs from those nearby in Burma, Laos and Thailand. They are Theravada Buddhists but also maintain non-Buddhist beliefs.

Processing in Photoshop: removed slight orange colour cast, faded it back in a bit, sharpened.
