During the fall of 2012, I spent 26 days trying to understand the daily lives of the Burmese people. With the dramatic changes that have recently taken place in regards to the political situation in Myanmar, I seized the opportunity to visit.
Although still under military rule, Myanmar is slowly taking steps towards democratization; a fraction of political prisoners have been released, Aung San Suu Kyi and her party, the National League for Democracy have been enlivened and there is much potential for foreign investments. It is a time of great change for this isolated country, and I wanted to experience it before the changes truly took hold.
Uncertain of what to expect, Myanmar has proven to be one of my favorite countries. What makes this country special is its people. The Burmese nationals, even with all of their hardships, are among the most gracious, genuine peoples I've ever met. Hopefully these pictures can convey their sincerity and brightness.
I hope that someday my photography can be used for good. To help people in any way possible.
