Little Girl Whose Cheek Is White

Girl with white cheeks

Thanaka was thick painted on her cheeks

Shot in the city of Pyay, Myanmar.

The girl was stark white because she painted her cheek with Thanaka, a combination of skin conditioner, sunblock and make-up. It was common to see people who painted their cheeks in white here. Their faces looked so exotic for me.
