Nobody smokes more beautifully than this Intha Tribesman from Lake Inle, Myanmar: Cheroot
It was in the midst of the annual Phaung-Daw-Oo festival celebrations when I saw him inside a Buddhist temple with his fellow male elders. They were all sitting on a rug, enjoying a big pile of cheroots (local cigars) while the women prayed to Buddha. I sauntered up to him, and when I raised my camera to take his headshot, he seemed to know the portrait that I had in mind. The man exhaled slowly, a rich cloud of smoke oozing from his mouth. This is one of my favorite headshots ever. And man, that cigar really tasted good. I bought a US$1's worth - that's about 2 dozen cheroots!
