Photographer's Note

Women selling morning breakfast in the ferry that crosses the Mekong river, Champasak, south of Laos. The vendor had just delivered a soup to the person at left of this image.

I was at the back of this public truck while shooting them, with moving heads and arms passing constantely in front of my camera.

Meandering for 4km along the right bank of the Mekong, CHAMPASAK is an unassuming town of wooden shophouses and two red dirt roads, with a pace so decidedly leisurely that it's difficult to imagine it was the capital of a once bustling kingdom.
