The Face of Nepali Rice Farmer

Abstract

During a break from our trekking, my guide brought me into the house of this sweet man who asked me about how I became deaf. While I was there I also took a picture of his huge rice paddy field on the mountainside behind his village house.

Description

A picture of an elderly man with a graying mustache and wispy white beard. He wears a knit teal cap and a worn zippered jacket. His face is full of wrinkles and he appears solemn, his gaze piercing through. He stands in front of a blurred striped background with just head and shoulders showing. One side of the portrait is in shadow and subdued.
