Since late 2002, I have been involved in photographing ethnic minority villages in Luang Namtha province, in North Western Laos.
This is an ongoing project, in 2003 and 2004 I spent about 4 months a year up there, since late 2004 I live with my wife in Vientiane and travel North about a week each month for photography.
I am not sure if this is the right forum, but I am looking for feedback. I feel occasionally that I work in a bit of a vacuum, I miss other photographers to discuss what i'm doing, whetehr it is valid, what can be improved.
Although i used to work as a museum photographer in the 70's and 80's, I left photography in '87, and almost didn't touch a camera until about 2000, when I went digital. Steep learning curve, still learning.
I need to see printed images, but prinetrs here are not up to scratch, I need to fly to Bangkok to get a half decent printer, then language issues make feedback fickle.
I thought about buying a Canon 5000 or so, but service would be a nightmare, and climate control (Heat dust and humidity) could be a nightmare as well.
If anyone has the time, have a look at my site, and give me some feedback.
BTW, the three attached files are small for reasons of local bandwith.
