Smiling refugee by Richard Barry

What China has done to Tibet has always filled me with angst. Despite their lot, Tibetans have the happiest smiles and the most wonderful faces. I do hope one day they will be able to smile again, in their own country, free of the Chinese disease that has been allowed to spread for over 50 years watched by disinterested world governments.

Free Tibet.

I am a baby, newborn and maternity photographer trying to break the norm with imaginative photography. I relish your feedback on my works, so break RB’s rules and tell me what you really think. Thanks
