Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand

This short series of images were taken during our recent filming of ´Catharsis´. This documentary follows the stories of some of the people who benefitted from Doi Tung Development Project, which saw this opium dependent region transform into a coffee and tea tree producing area. 


There are seven different tribal peoples in the Doi Tung area, and these photos were taken in Lahu and Akha villages.


The difficult conditions in rainy season lead these wonderful people to live in relative isolation in the mountains, despite their proximity to Chiang Rai city.
