This project was photographed during a trip to Vietnam in June 2015. The project looks at local woman from the minority villages surrounding Sapa who come into the town to sell goods and tours. The majority of people photographed are part of the Hmong people - "Black Hmong sub-groups have differentiated themselves by adopting different headwear; those with a large comb embedded in their long hair (but without a hat) call themselves Tao, those with a pillbox hat name themselves Giay, and those with a checked headscarf are Yao."
More images from this trip can be seen in my blog.
