Homage to the Little Folk, photographs by Mark Ulyseas
The innocence of children is contaminated with our hate. We use bigotry as a chisel to sculpture young minds into lean, mean hating machines that become fountains of violence. And we wonder why the world is spiraling into political and environmental chaos.
Every country has its own Children’s Day. What is the point… when we never listen to what these little folk have to say?
The following photographs are of children participating in the fabulous religious and cultural pageant in celebration of Pi Mai, the Lao New Year, in Luang Prabang – a Buddhist World Heritage Town.
Their demeanor is individuality personified.
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om
