This is probably the photo I'm most proud of. An Akha lady helps her daughter with her traditional headdress, made up of silver coins and specially-woven embroidery. On a deeper level, after having captured this moment and upon reflection, the emotions of both individuals exemplifies cultural loss and its significance in today's world - the young girl which represents younger generations often hold the responsibility to pass down cultural practices but as a result of modernization, there is much reluctance and increasing abandonment of such traditions.
