Photographer's Note

Nan...a northern province of Thailand where a lot of H'mong minorities have called their home.

These are the many faces of the children that I photographed. After a hectic day of community service, I cooled off in a nearby convenience store only to be swarmed by yet another throng of photogenic children. I couldn't resist their smile. I couldn't resist their request of another photo. This time, they froze like they're gonna have a class picture. I very well remember my elementary days. And i also remember a popular advertisement... The United Colors of Benetton (Nan).

I desaturated the background. i also adjusted down the saturation of the colors of the children and their shirts. Somehow, I wanted to show the purity of their face and soul. (Used my brother's D100 for this shot.)
