Dao villagers work together to build a house in the mountains of Hà Giang. The eldest would dig clay from a nearby field and fill baskets fitted like backpacks so that the younger three could carry them to the construction site nearby. Clay houses in this region of Vietnam are very common, as the source material seems to be quite abundant in addition to acting as a natural temperature control - sealing the heat in the winter and cooling the house in the summer. I took a portrait of the child in the background of the first photo shortly after approaching the house, and though he wasn’t helping in any way I could see he was never far from my side as I took these photographs. Swipe to the end to see some of the house in progress.
I really have to say, sticking my feet out in unique locations is my one of my favourite things to photograph. Seriously though, this spot was a blast to be in, and held a super fun experience. Expect to see more in the coming weeks.
