Gift of the artist, 2006
This color photograph was taken in northern Vietnam at a village market in fall of 2004. The photograph was originally included in an exhibition entitled, "The Living Cloth-Woven Treasures of Southeast Asia." The image then found itself on the cover of several magazines and became well-associated with the textile exhibition as well as the artist.
