Photographer's Note

This is a real oldie.


O Mon is a small countryside community in the rice fields of the Mekong delta, northwest from Can Tho.
Walking around the village and paddies, we caught these two boys in a rather private moment. I think they were as surprised as we were.

After we'd laughed off any uneasy feelings, the idea of me taking a picture was something they found completely hilarious (obviously), but they didn't seem to mind, so I just could not resist.

It did take a while before I decided to publish it, though. Over the years the picture has become a kind of document from the (good?) old days. So, for old times' I go...and I hope nobody will mind.

I wonder what's happened to these guys. I sure hope life has been kind to them and wish them all the best!
