16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Learning

I took this picture in a public school in Saraburi (Thailand) during a Buddhist religion school ceremony. Girls have to sit down in the back side of the room. A boy kindergartner, who is not aware of that rule, arrives late and sits down in the women section. I capture the moment he is removing his shoes. On the back three girls in a different pose: an attentive listener, a girl with a bored pose and a girl looking straight to the camera breaking the fourth wall.
