Kinh Wave Side Story: Washing Clothes by the High Stream

giat do tren suoi cao

At this time, the photobook project Kinh Wave: Làn sóng phát triển (The waves of development) has been completed and is in the preparation stage for release. This is one of many small stories I collected during the process of preparing the Kinh Wave book. These stories were not mentioned in the book, but they have brought me many emotions, so I decided to share them on my personal blog, please follow.

One day wandering around in Sín Chải village, I came across two babies standing waiting for their parents, and only after asking did I know that the whole family was preparing to go up to the high stream to wash clothes. I immediately followed along and recorded this cute little story.

washing by the high stream

Two little siblings waiting for their parents.

The whole family is on the way to the high stream.



The father arranges stones to make special laundry area.

The mother prepares the laundry with soap.

The two siblings still have no idea why I’m here.

The mother is doing laundry on a large rock, and she is also carrying her third baby on her back.

The father comes back for laundry.

It’s cold so he covers his children with his jacket.

How cute!

Stay tuned for the debut of Kinh Wave, a long-term photo book project that was carried out from 2017 to 2022.

Til next time,
