BURMA 1996

Gold-covered stupas and soaring Buddha statues, serene waterways lined with floating gardens, fascinating handicrafts and hill tribes: these are just a few of Myanmar’s hidden treasures. Still ruled by a military junta when we visited in the 90's and until a civilian government was installed in 2011, Myanmar, or Burma, is a profoundly Buddhist country whose gentle people have retained many of their ancient traditions. From the temples of Yangon and Mandalay to the timeless stilt villages of Inle Lake, you can shoot all day in the enchanting culture of Myanmar.

These images are made from transparencies going back nearly 15 years and are now being upgraded with the help of better software and a new and fully calibrated monitor. Unfortunately my widest lens in those days was only 28mm. I'd love to go back with my digital bodies and wider lenses.
