This is an image I photographed at a refugee camp in Northern Thailand of a young Padaung hilltribe girl from Myanmar. I didn't originally intend to photograph her as I didn't want to appear insensitive and touristy. I tried to communicate with smiles and hand signals but her expression never wavered. She looked quite unhappy and at that point, I felt I had to capture this emotion. I took this photo with a Canon 10D and 17-40mm f/4L lens in June 2004.
