Photographer's Note

Photo taken at the Can cau market, about 30km from Bac Ha town, Lao cai province. It takes place every Sat morning. Local people here who are almost ethnicities go to market from surrounding villages, some Chinese traders also cross the border (9km away) to attend. The girl in this photo is of Flower H'mong minority. She's about 16 or 17 years of age, I guess. It's quite normal among those people to get married and have children early.

The H'mong people is one of the largest hill tribes groups in Vietnam (population is apprx. 600,000). They often occupy and live on the mountainous and remote areas, mainly in the Northern part of Vietnam. Based on the costums they are wearing, and some dialects they are speaking, H'mong people can be sub-divided in smaller groups such as: Black, Red, Blue, White, Green and Flower H'mong.
