Young Long-Necked Girl
One of the most difficult areas I went to was a group of Long-Neck people residing in northern Thailand. What made this difficult was that there is the impression that many of these people are "paid" to stay in the village and practice their unique customs just for tourists. I did not realize this too much until later, but there was a certain melancholy in the area and a simple smile did not always work. As I observed more, I felt the best thing to do was try to capture the mood as best possible. So, in the case of this young lady, I tried not to get her to smile or pose. As with all portraits, the eyes tell the story and hopefully I was able to catch a little of that melancholy in her face. She was a beautiful young lady and very reserved.
