Girl With Thanaka And Baby

Girl looking after baby

The girl was looking after the baby

Shot in the city of Pyay, Myanmar.

I met a girl painted Thanaka on her entire face. Some squares and lines which were drawn with Thanaka were arranged on her face. It looked like just a face paint. At the same time, I thought she might draw the patterns to infuse some meanings. Because she was a girl, it was no wonder that the pattern had meanings of beauty or cuteness. However, I was imagining things.

When I focused on her, she started to hug tight the baby. She might be afraid to be shot. Anyway, she looked straight at me.
