PROJECT DESCRIPTION
When I travel, what I most enjoy is not climbing the highest peak, not swimming in the bluest waters, but having the opportunity to try to understand a country through its people. Through simple dialogue and "hands and feet" trying to get a glimpse into "what is their life." This pleasure I think shows in my photos - for every landscape I have 10 portraits.  Comments and critiques on TE taught me a lot. In this project, which will only be portraits I will try to show the many faces that make up Burma.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
With this my first project on Photholik, I'll try to give you an impression of life in Mrauk U, Burma. The village wakes early before the sun rises and each of the seven mornings that I was there was special. Either climbing the highest peak to witness the sunrise or walking through the village watching the villagers light their morning fires to take the chill away and to share  mohinga, (morning noodle soup). With hardly any motorised vehicles the pace of life is slow. The streets are full of cyclists, rickshaws and pedestrians going about their business.
