A life story told by the look in her eyes

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Diane Peets

I took this picture in Tan Chau, Vietnam outside a rattan mat-making workshop. As we listened to our guide, this beautiful woman just walked up and sat down on her swing, not bothered by our presence, but in a world of her own. How I would have loved to hear her story, but I really think her face and the look in her eyes said it all.

Location: Tan Chau, Vietnam
