wearing her story ~ Yunnan

Every stitch on her costume, every threaded bead she decorates herself with, every wrinkle on her face plays a part in telling her story, a life so different to ours, a world so alien to 21st century culture, an existence rising out of old traditions, she belongs to a tribe that allows strangers no access. All I could capture was the sense of her presence and the few photographs that I always hope could link to the state of standing in front of these amazing people.

  3. I’m really glad I came across your blog! These shots are amazing! I started taking photos of people just a little while ago. Before that, I used to do only Architecture photos. I’d really appreciate it if you could give me some advice about portraits and photographing people. http://bmyshot.wordpress.com/
    I’ll be following you from now on. Let’s keep in touch!
