A slice of life
Young monks mix concrete to mold a new statue of Buddha. A Hmong dancer performs somersaults while playing the khaen. Two women gather river weed, to be dried, then fried, into a local delicacy.
Through photography and text, this book portrays the culture, daily life, festivals, food, and special sights of Luang Prabang province. It is the first in a planned series of books, about the provinces of Laos.
