15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
La Petite Fille

Last year I began my own personal photo documentary entitled "A Lao Story: A Family's Account of Finding Refuge in France" where I interviewed a Laotian mother, Saphangthong Chokbengboun, and her experience with finding asylum in France during the Laotian Civil War. During the interview she admitted that her life, as well as that of her children, might have never been the same had she and her husband not undergone the risk of escaping from their native country. Today, her gratitude and pride narrows down to not only being the mother of four children, but the probably even prouder grandmother of three. Pictured here is her eldest grandchild, Thea.
