Photographer's Note

A little Khmu village in Nale district, Luang Namtha province. Name unknown. I came with two Lao guides, who were doing a survey to find new tourism trails.
The children on arrival were initially shy, someone said they'd never seen a falang before. Eventually, they relaxed.
My guide explained to the village chief my policy of always sending prints back to the village of any photos I take. He consulted with his elders, and they requested I'd take family photographs of every family in the village. Because the light was fading, and we had an early start next morning, I suggested families prepare for photo next morning early.
They were prepared, lined up in the morning.
