Market Day

Photo and caption by Jonathan O'Shaughnessy

This image was taken of a forlorn mother with her child on the weekly market day in Bac Ha, Vietnam. The look on their faces and the child's tattered clothing tell a powerful story. I was lucky enough to watch her make a sale of turnips later on in the day, and thankfully her worry turned to elation as she could then feed her children.

Location: Bac Ha, Vietnam
