Boy Painted Thanaka On His Face

Boy painted Thanaka on face

A kind of a pattern was drawn on his face

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Many stalls were grouped along the wide street called Strand Road and formed a night market. This night market didn't exist when I came to Yangon 8 years ago. I heard they were moved from other places by the city administration for the land readjustment. The city authority seemed to think the messiness of these stalls were ineligible to be a part of a modern city. It didn't think the bustling of the ordinary people was the vigor of the city and it was the enticement attracting the tourists.

Anyway, the night market was bustling modestly. Some locals came here to eat supper. Walking around the night market, I met a boy. His mother worked in the market and he played around her. Thanaka was painted on his face plentifully as if it drew a kind of a pattern. And I thought the pattern on his forehead looked like a silhouette of Micky Mouse.
