I first met Pento at a party in her family home when she was three years old. She had an engaging presence for a small child and I photographed her against a stack of rice sacks. A few years later, I saw her again with her aunty Kinley in a yak camp at 15,000 feet near the border of Lunana, and again photographed her. In 2011 I was camping in a yak pasture above Laya and saw this beautiful young teenager. She gave me a shy look and I realized it was Pento! It seems that no matter where I go in the Bhutanese highlands, I run into Pento.
