…into the jungle, she said, and I did. Diew, Chiang Mai’s first female ‘hilltribe trekking’ guide, and the mother of our two children. Taken in the late 1970s in the hills of Chiang Mai province, Thailand. This photograph appeared on the cover of Sawasdee, the Thai International Airlines magazine.

I am an Australian expat living in the hills of Mae Hong Son province Thailand (please visit cavelodge.com). I photograph almost everything, above and below ground.
