    On our recent trip through the Spiti Valley in the Himalayas, we got the chance to spend the night at a local friend's home; enjoying the mountain hospitality.Our hostess showed us her bridal trousseau and the heavy silver and turquoise embedded jewellery which were handed down through generations. She insisted on dressing up my friend in that beautiful silk woven dress and a cape, decorated in intricate Tibetan design and it turned out to be the most beautiful moments of our Himalayan journery!

    I love the layers in this portrait and the sense of ease I feel from our character through their body language. I would love to know if there is significance to the fabrics they are wearing and more context to this location!
