Girl from Buri Ram....

Girl from Buri Ram
In Thailand, all the girls want to be "white"........the sale of whitening cream products is a major growth industry.....all the tv commercials, fashion magazines and billboards feature girls so white they are practically transparent.......but for the Khmer girls from Buri Ram, dark brown, connected to the earth, raised in the dusty farmland along the border with Cambodia, there is no escape........
