Karen Tribe Woman

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Christopher Bonn

This Karen woman was sitting in front of her home on Sunday morning, awaiting the rest of her family before they went to Christian church. Like most tribal villages in Northern Thailand, this one had also been converted by Christian missionaries. Dressed in her traditional garb, she is still holding on to whats left of her culture while the rest is fades away.

Location: Karen Village, Chiang Rai Province, Thailand
