n 2015 I spent three weeks in Myanmar, one of the best journeys I have ever done.
One of the things that became apparent was how easy it is photographing people. I found the Myanmarians a very welcoming people and their faces caught my eye again and again. Connecting with local people is probably one of the greatest joys I derive from travelling.
I love the learning and sharing that stem from unexpected conversations, or, when language barriers prevent words, to communicating with mime and smiles and gestures. Much to the amusement of many and the in credulousness of my partner My journey took me through three distinct areas, Yangon, Bagan and Inle, although I would say that Inle has two areas Inle, and Inle North.
I found the faces did differ, and besides helping me expand my personal photography in “people and street photography” I feel is a journalistic look at the faces of Myanmar. Some of the images are of working people, some of people going about their daily lives, all I think you will find will give the viewer a unique look into people’s lives.
