Photographer's Note

In Krabi, in Southern Thailand, the day after an important festival the novices were cleaning up the mess. The day was very hot and there was no shade. This young novice has pulled his robe over his shaved head. He is collecting heave metal flagpoles and his face shows signs of fatigue and heat. A time spent as a novice is part of the training for all young men in a Buddhist society and doing work about the temple is part of their duties. However, they do go to school and there is time for fun.
