Shot in the town of Muang Sing, Laos.
The Akha woman was standing by the street alone. She was looking into the distance and had no interest in my camera. Many kinds of minorities lived in around this town. And some people came to the town and doing small business for tourists.
Often they encouraged to buy opium in an undertone. Of course, it was prohibited to smoke opium in this country. Some minorities seemed to cultivate secretly in their territory.
