Mother & Daughter by Ryszard Wierzbicki

Kathmandu is endless source of topics for photographers. Nepalese people are very friendly and willing to pose for photos. However, it is essential to spend some time with your models in exchange for their kindness. I personally offer to watch the picture taken by me. Usually, it is enough rewarding to show your respect and gratitude for this allowance of stepping into somebody’s privacy. Very rare people claim donations, but those kinds of photos are not very natural at all. In the case of this photograph Mother & Daughter were very cooperative and willing to play the role of models.
