Photographer's Note

This picture is from Mae Sariang, a small town in northwestern Thailand, in January 1973. When I took it, I probably just saw some kids outside a house, now I see the two sides of Thai life: one ordinary "civilian" life, another devoted to religion. The two ordinary boys and the two monastery novices seem to me like mirroring images of each other, one pair facing each other, another turning their backs on each other.
This was scanned fom a Kodachrome slide.
