[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I met the woman on a Saturday, market day, when sheís on the way to market.
In mountainous areas of VN, like Ha Giang, people go to market site not everyday ; just once a week or few days a week, the other day market sites are left vacant. Going to market is a lovelything. Itís not to sell or to buy things they need, more important itís a chance they surf around, come together, meeting people, chatting, then say goodbye to eachother and come back home, which can be a mountain far away each other. And they donít forget to make an appointment for next market day.

the woman belongs to Dzao group (about 96,000 ), among other 21 monitities groups in Hagiang. A Dzao women would pull away all her eyebrows, to her itís beautiful.

Talked to her, i learn that sheís 44 with 4 children, unbelievable though I know sheís not lying to me. Hard life.

Hello, Eva,
Very good composition of the photo, the woman has a natural expression, I like it. The note is also an interesting idea of the life of Dzao people.
Thanks for sharing.
