Mountain village and go-kart

John Spies

Mae Hong Son, Thailand

Artist's Description

A Black Lahu boy rides his brakeless, homemade go-kart through his pituresque village on the Burmese border in northern Thailand. This shot was taken in 1979, before the village had a road, or the villagers had seen a car. When a bulldozer pushed a road into their village a few years later, people took packed lunches to watch, with amazement ,the roadbuilding. Before then, the biggest earthmover they knew of was a hoe.
