An elderly woman in Myanmar is one of the last of her tribe to have intricate facial tattoos. "The tribes first began to ink their faces as a way of disfiguring their beauty, to make themselves unattractive in hopes that by doing so, they could avoid being kidnapped or chosen as concubines by the Burmese kings," explains #YourShotPhotographer Han Lin Teh. "The process of the facial tattooing is extremely painful, especially on the tender eyelid areas, and dangerous, as some even died of infection. It has been outlawed since 1960s."

At a gallery opening in 2013 when I was doing an essay for National Geographic on the Le Marais neighborhood in Paris, I attended an art gallery opening. A painter from a mid east country had an exhibit which was strongly inhabited by faces with staring eyes. I don’t remember why I chose to tilt the camera at the moment of exposure but it was probably in haste in order not to miss the little girl’s stance, one foot firmly planted, the other kind of wavering, her arms outstretched in an echo of her legs and feet. We really don’t need to see the child’s face; it’s very much implied that her eyes are locked on those in the paintings. And the angularity of the image is tight with tension.
