Photographer's Note

The Muslims are a small minority in Thailand and most of them live in the southern part of the country. Some of them live in small islands in the Ao Phang Nga National Marine Park. The most impressing thing is that some of these islands are just a vertical rock rising from the sea, upon which are "attached" small stilt villages like the one where this photo was taken, Ko Panyi (population: 2000, very close to the famous James Bond Island). It's a very rare thing to see in Thailand, women with covered head walking in small alleys above the water. I even saw there fishes "walking" on sand, at the hour of ebb (please, believe me!).

While I was walking through the narrow alleys of the village, i saw this beautiful girl standing at the door. At first i wanted to take a close portrait of her, but then i noticed some more details like the man lying on the floor watching TV and the women in the other room cooking. I hope that there's not much "useless" staff in the picture.
