Photo and caption by Marguerite de Tavernost

Portrait of a man from Tallinn, a burmese village in the surroundings of Rangoon. The bloody red-tinted lips of this man are a common feature of the Burmese people. It is due to betel nuts that they eat all day long believing it can relieve their pain and hunger.

Location: Tallinn, Myanmar.
