Beautiful, but Looking Sad

    Newer Older

    I have to say that I liked being able to see a part of the world that I had only heard of. However, I really felt that the people in these villages were put on display like at a zoo. It's still hard for me to accept going to places like this as a tourist... I don't think I would like to have a crowd of people walking through my house gawking at me.

    That said, I was very pleased with this portrait.

      Thank you all
      Although I did appreciate the cultural experience of visting this village. I felt that we were intruding into these people's lives. I just am never that comfortable with visits to places like this. I felt that they were being exploited.

      It is a shame that the little girl has to have those arond her neck, but unfortunally it is their custom.

      Parfaitement d'accord !
      Je suis allé en Birmanie en 2010 et je me suis refusé de prendre ces femmes en photo en protestation.

      You took a fine portrait of her!
