Here’s a selection of images from a few hours spent photographing the tea pickers in Northern Vietnam. They pretty much ignored us and carried on with their work and weren’t self conscious at all.
They must absolutely swelter underneath those face coverings.
So young to be working in the fields 🙁
After we’d been photographing for a while we practiced the art of patience, waiting for the sun to be lower in the sky so that we could capture sunbursts and workers. It was still baking hot and sunny, so this is how I dealt with it!
Over an hour later I was back in action.
Many attempts later, this is the result.
