Old Tibetan Woman

There are two pictures from Tibet that you always see: the wide eyed "dirty but beautiful" kid and the smiling old Tibetan lady.


Old Tibetan people, because of the sun and the wind and the cold have great wrinkled faces that look good on camera. But I couldn't bring myself to shoot one of those "I'm so happy and mystical" or "I'm filthy and malnourished but have so much soul!" pictures. So this is my attempt at something else.


This is the old lady who owns the land where we were shooting. She spent the whole day (no joke) throwing rocks at dogs.


I hope It's not just another "Old Tibetan Woman" picture.
