Photographer's Note

Mass for Liberating Soul from Tomb (B’Thi) is taken place annually after ending of the rainy season. According to the concept of ethnic minority groups in GiaLai-KonTum, people have their souls; souls turn into ghosts when they die. Only after doing “B’Thi” can the dead be liberated.
