As the ladies of the Karen get older, the neck is extended further.
Originally from Myanmar (Burmah), but now residing (refugees) in Northern Thailand due to the troubles in their own country.

Good b&w portrait. Looks uncomfortable. I think I read that it doesn't actually elongate the neck, but pushes the shoulders down.
Thanks Roger, you are right in the fact that the neck is not actually elongated but this is the illusion created. The apparel is amazingly heavy.
excellent photo Paul. Classic pose, but just the right dof and exposure.
Also read somewhere that as soon as the rings are taken off, their neck is not able to keep straight as its muscles have lost their supporting strenght. Wouldn't know it it is true though.
nice travel shot
heard that about the weaker neck muscles too.
Wonder how much the shoulders can be pushed down. Seems more difficult to do than to increase the distance between the various neck vertebrae.
Good photo, the eyes are a bit too white to my liking
Excellent image, haven't seen the long necked tribe but have seen some of the other tribes. Tara x
there's some off practices out there
love the shot though, nice and calm, spot on record shot.
great dof and exposure.....a excellent portrait!!!
wow.. wonderful portrait, and not just because of the neck rings, she has a very serene look and i love the DOF and tone of this
Beautiful tones lovely light and detail and a lovely composition.
Wow... erm... wow! Super shot in mono and incredible subject. Very, very well done.
Wonderfull shot, I was just watching a documentry about this and they commented that these rings are kept on for life due too the length that their necks reach.. Fasinating picture indeed.
Also thanks for the comments on my Auschwitz,,
Another cracker of a record! The monochrome conversion works well. Just hope she doesn't dislodge that earing, she would need a blacksmith to retrieve it ;o)) Bill.
