A Chinese girl I've met in a small town near Himalayas. Of course, nobody in the town spoke English. I wanted to take a portrait of this girl, so I asked her to stand.
She understood it literally and stood like it was a formal portrait — with her hands straight and near the body, and a constant smile on her face.
After I took a shoot and showed it to her. I wonder if she would be still living in this town 20 years after this photo!
