Photographer's Note

These are young 'Akha' women at a tribal market in Luang Namtha. They work really hard every day, live in isolation in hamlets in the mountains and got up at the crack of dawn and walk for many hours to get in town. Hence market day is also a special moment for them after selling their farm produce, it's time for meeting friends, socialising, resting, shopping etc. etc., I was really taken aback by the signature clothing and their sensational head gears.

For a moment they were totally distracted which helped a great deal for a few good shots.

Setting: 200 mm, 1/2000 sec, F4, ISO Raw 200, 1050 hrs
