Photographer's Note

This was taken on a peaceful cool morning in Ban Pak Sak about 6km out of town, nothing staged about it just a simple straight shot of a humble rural Tai Dam woman doing daily routine in a small stream, a tributary of Namtha river. There's nothing glamour about this fraction of a second snap but I was so touched by the infectious smile of a soulful woman, the warmest smiles imaginable.

The people of Laos are so welcoming, so dignified and they make me feel very humble and it always amazes me how it seems to be those who have so little that are the one most willing to give so much. A beautiful lesson in life that precious things often have no cost.

A Pure Joy in her face.......
