Streets of Yangon IV

151027-298-edited

Right now, if I could choose one city in the world to wander around in with a camera, it would be Yangon. My visit in November last year was my second time in the city, so it was familiar enough for me to feel comfortable and orientated, but not so familiar that I felt like I’d seen it all before. I spent a lot of time just zigzagging my way through the tightly-packed grid of streets in downtown Yangon, no particular destination in mind, just looking for a character, a scene or a detail to photograph.

    Did you try the food in the penultimate photo? We had it in a market when we were there and it was delicious!

    What I love about these photos is that even though they must obviously be “composed” they are direct, raw and completely un contrived. Beautiful work.
