au marché

Posted by : Helen : (is currently photographing in, Australia) on 14 November 2006 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Following the interest in the spectacular rice terraces I thought I would post a photo of the people in this region of Yunnan Province.

Women shopping at the market in Yuang Yang, China. The colourfully dressed women (I think they are Dai, but I have forgotton which tribe exactly) hand stitch all the colourful embroidery bands used on their clothing. The colours of the clothes designate the the minority tribe they belong to.

Interesting information and a vivid photo. It looks like a very colorful market between the items for sale and the people!

Very colorful! Nice capture of ordinary life. I'd consider cropping the woman on the extremely left - the one that is cut in half. Cheers!
