Eighty percent of the Burmese people are Buddhists. If there were to be a universal symbol for this country, it would be the mystical Buddha image. This one is at Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. I do not photograph it to describe its appearance. Rather, I have made this abstract photograph to involve the imagination the viewer and at the same time convey a sublime feeling. It is an image of silence, thought, and reverence. And all of this comes because I choose to show less and say more by using underexposure, a very close vantage point, and selective framing.
