A woman and daughter from a Tibetan village in the Jiu Zhai Gou (九寨沟) region in Sichuan Province, China, standing at a corner of a deserted street. It was a rather quirky and unrehearsed moment capturing this shot. The mother avoided looking at the camera while the daughter was seemingly curious and stared rather intensely at me. Situated in the arid landscape, surrounded by snowcapped mountains, this Tibetan town seemingly caters to the throngs of tourists wanting to catch a glimpse of Tibetan living.
Location: Jiu Zhai Gou, Sichuan Province, China
