Myanmar is a fascinating, enigmatic and cultural country filled with rich history dating long back to the 12thCentury. It is truly a“Golden Land” for every travel and documentary photographer. The country is a living documentary and still maintaining its old-world spiritual culture.
What particularly struck me during my Myanmar trip has been the human cheerfulness and simplicity. Beautiful people and the character of individual faces, their unique expression fascinates me a lot as a photographer. Myanmar is one of the best places in the world to shoot intimate portraits. The Myanmar portraits are the most beautiful images of the world taken by many photographers and travelers.
The people are naturally beautiful and extremely cooperative while taking their pictures. Beyond the pagodas and beautiful landscape, the innocent little monks in maroon robes or cute nuns in pink robes, the mischievous expression of young boys and girls, smiling faces painted with thanakha, iconic Intha fisherman, unique tribal communities, wisdom winkles of an elderly person were just mesmerizing for me.
Without any doubt, Myanmar is one of the most enjoyable photogenic places in the world and it is for the fact that Burmese people offer a sincere hospitality that is exclusive to Myanmar.
