Artist's Description

This picture was taken in 1979 in a remote Black Lahu village on the Thai-Burmese border. The mother, Amy-Sor, is obviously proud of her healthy first daughter, Na Fa. I was living with her extended family at the time in her village, Ban Huoy Hea, which was 6 hours walk from the nearest road. I took the picture with a Nikon FM2, Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lense, using Kodachrome slide film. Natural light. It is one of my favourite shots.
