This New Year, with my miniature backpack, I hit the northern provinces of Laos in search of the road less travelled.
The highlight of the trip was meeting Glen Allison, a pro photographer. He needed an assistant, so without much thought I tagged along as we made the long and positively arduous journey to Phonsali, far off in the misty hills, somewhere near the border with China. On the many exhausting journeys along river and through mountain, the time flew, as we talked of lenses, Buddhism, and finding an authentic path in life.
Glen focused on photographing Akhar women. In his quest for the traditional Akhar look we trekked many miles into dense jungle by foot. I love walking; Glen doesn’t, but for both of us it was well worthwhile.
