Location Myanmar

Myanmar is a very special place for me. This is where I discovered that photography was my thing, my passion. I have very fond memories of walking down the hot streets of the big cities like Yangon and Mandalay and small towns like Kalay and Meikhtila. I have a very clear memory of the amazing quality of the light, the colours, the smells and the lovely burmese people. In many respects this project is the opposite of 'Tierra Santa // Holy Land' where I photograph trying to look for images that describe and look among places that are within my nature. Myanmar however was a complete unknown place and culture to me which forced me to look in a different way.
