the girla is Akha, but also Thai of course.
Simnon thanks for looking.
1.the girl is about 25 years. And all clothes has to be new before they can get old.
2.most are anemiste but I suppose some are Buddhist or Christian. Remember that the monks on horses come to their village to make them Buddhist.
3. It's about 8 in the morning. And the pics are not for any book or postcards. They are shoot about 1½ hours drive from Chiang Rai in the mountains.
oupsss i forgot one thing
maybe i am wrong
here face dont really look Akha but more thai or eurasian ??
hello Lars nice galerie
i am a bit suprising about this and other pics
1/ this girls is a Akha i never seen a young girl Akha with all the costume
and also seems new and clean.
2/ i though Akha were Anemiste and some are Catholique, it just a bit strange this offrande to some buddhist monk.
3/ the offrande are early in morning and here it seems to be not so early ??
are those pics real or made for something special (book, revue , post card .... )
i was just wonder
