Photographer's Note

I began the story yesterday, with the portrait from 2019. This February we travelled back to this remote part of Rakhine State, to the fishing village and found the young girl (and her family). The kids remembered us from last year, which is hardly surprising as I think we were the last westerners here, and were excited to see us again, not much happens in this part of the world. The excitement reached a fury when we started to unpack the prints that we had taken of them the previous year. Neighbours in the village were summoned, tea was made, coconuts broken, cloves of garlics and dried fish (a local snack) were offered to us on chipped saucers. Their gratitude immense, and the pleasure was all ours.
