Is that you(rs)?
Thousands of tourists visit Luang Prabang every year. A lot of them take photographs of this beautiful village and of the Lao people living in it. Hardly anyone will ever see these photographs but the photographers themselves. This exhibit will be different.
Ed Polderman -a photographer from the Netherlands- lived and worked in Vientiane from 2006-2009. He visited Luang Prabang on several occasions. A selection of the photographs he took of the Lao people -in and just outside Luang Prabang- are exhibited during the OFF Photography Festival 2010. Is that you? Your father, mother or one of your children? Take that photo back home. It's yours to keep!
