Photographer's Note

Not everyone's cup of tea perhaps..

Here is quick grab portrait of a woman in Ban Nam Dee village north of Luang Namtha. She belongs to the “Lanten', a small but distinctive ethnic minority residing in northern Laos. Maintaining a strong cultural identity, they are easily recognised by their hand woven, indigo dyed attire and silver earrings. Interesting that most of the women shave off their eyebrows and foreheads as this is traditionally regarded as a sign of beauty.

Such a determined face, full of character.....
