People of Myanmar

I put together this set of images for a gallery show I may have the chance to do.   It was fun to look through these images of people I met and was able to photograph when I went to Myanmar in February. It’s a big world filled with incredible people, I’m looking forward to […]

Full Moon Festival at Shwe Dagon Pagoda in Myanmar

The Shwe Dagon pagoda in Yangon is central to the people of Myanmar and their faith.  It is a major place of worship for Buddhists in Myanmar as it enshrines relics of four Buddhas.  The history of and details about this golden pagoda are incredible and the Wikipedia entry is an interesting read. My last evening […]

Covering Shwe Dagon in gold

The Shwedagon Zedi Daw is a nexus point for Myanmar’s Buddhists.  It’s history goes back more than 2600 years and it is an amazing place of humanity, faith and spirituality.  The main stupa is sheathed in gold foil as are many of the parapets and other buildings on the grounds.  I went there twice when […]

A dancing abstract

I was looking through my image library for abstracts that I could use for a print series I’m working on and found the image above.  I had photographed a reflection pool from the fourth story of a hotel in Mandalay, Myanmar.  Leaning out of the window and using a longer lens, I was first drawn […]

Yangon’s Chinatown Market

This evening I was working with some images from a trip in 2010 to Myanmar.  I put together this small set from a walk along one of the market streets in Yangon’s Chinatown.  People worked, shopped, talked and lived on this street.  Vibrant, crowded, loud and unusual were some of the thoughts I recall from […]

Ox carts in Bagan

Last year when I was traveling in Myanmar we spent several days on the plains of Bagan.  The dry season had a firm grip on the land and the fields and dirt roads erupted dust trails with any traffic passing through.  These clouds of dust drew our attention to a small village where we talked […]

Inle Lake: Jumping up a step

A girl runs toward a friend along a stilt bridge on the edge of Inle Lake in Myanmar.  The bridge extends a couple of hundred metres into the lake to allow boats to dock year round regardless of high water during the rainy season or the opposite extreme in the summer.  There was a community […]
