Bobbed Hair And Thanaka

Girl with bobbed hair

Thanaka was also painted on her face

Shot in Central Yangon, Myanmar.

When I was walking near Sule Pagoda, I met a girl with bobbed hair. Her face was sparkling white because she painted thanaka on her face. He showed me her bashful smile.

At the time of shooting, I had just arrived in this country. So I was not used to seeing and what she painted interested me so much. Yet it was a distinctive feature of the culture of this country. I saw people who painted thanaka everyday during staying.
