Circles On His Cheeks

Circles on his cheeks

The boy had circles on his cheeks

Shot in Central Yangon, Myanmar.

The circles were on his cheeks and a straight line was on this boy's nose bridge. The paint on his face was Thanaka, a sort of sunblock. It didn't mean that he was a clown. It was usual to paint in this country.

So, it was no wonder that some people wanted to express their identities by the shape. I thought he was one of them. In contradistinction to the sportiveness of his paint, his face was serious. He didn't seem to understand why I was interested.
