Padaung in London

“The Kayan Lahwi people, also known as Padaung, are a minority ethnic group with populations in Burma and Thailand. Padaung women are famous for their distinctive custom of wearing brass coils around their necks.” (read more at mashable.com) Once upon a time in 1935 these so called “giraffewomen” visited London. This journey was captured in black and white. We think these images, of cultures colliding, are truly wonderful and very inspiring. ( All Getty Images via viralnova.com/vintag.es )
