Photographer's Note

Sapa, in Northern Vietnam near the Chinese border, differs from the rest of the country because of its mountainous character and its diverse ethnic background.

The region is home to many tribes such as H’mong and Dzao, which migrated from China centuries ago. Some of them still don't speak Vietnamese.

We met this grandmother (with innovatively attached eyeglasses) during a trekking expedition on a rainy day. We asked, with the help of our guide, for permission to visit her house.

Her daughter was weaving clothes under the single electric lamp of the house. I took pictures of her grand-children by using the light coming from the garden.
