That is ridiculously sharp. Thanks for the reply, maybe there will be one of these lenses in my future.

Great composition, each shot draws the viewer in for a story. Favorite of mine is #2 or #5


Thank you very much, dranakin! I am glad you like the images.

Excellent shots! Great to see, brings back a lot of memories for me. I was first in Burma in 2000, which I realize is two decades ago now. It was pre-digital and all I had was a Pentax K1000 and a 50mm for the entirety of my 6 weeks there. It was at the very beginning of my photography obsession and I was still learning. I went back again in 2002 for 4 weeks with a full compliment of lenses and my trusty Minolta Alpha 7...I was a lot better by then. I was still shooting film, mostly Velvia,
...Show more

Dave, thank you for your kind words on the images! I am happy that you like’m. Wow, you did spend quite some time back then and did it even twice. I did it over 12 days. And it felt I barely scratched the surface. I was planning of going back soon thereafter, like the following year, but there are other places to go to and other things to photograph. So far, it was my only visit that time and considering what’s going on right now, it will remain like that in a long time. Time will tell...

I will be posting more images from there later.

Thank you very much, Dan! Regardless of their age, most girls/women there put that on for sun protection. Mothers put the same sunscreen on boys, too, until those boys don’t want to look like girls anymore .


Gorgeous set Joshua! I would expect no less from you 😁👍

I also saw many men using this clay 'sunscreen' especially in Mandalay and around Inle Lake.

I loved everything about the parts of the country I visited and the people I met. It is a disaster and a tragedy, what is happening at present.

Thank you very much, Kevin! I am glad you like the images. Yes, sadly Myanmar is in such a turmoil now...

I just love this set. It feels like you made a real connection with these kids - especially those two shot of the boy looking at the image on your camera!!

I apologize for the late replies. I was out-of-the-country for 10, including transits.

Thank you very much, Doug! Yes, that boy was a character.

I first visited old Burma in 1982 and went back several times. No camera allowed for me back then. Sorry.

Joshua, I commented on this post back in February but now having met you, I can see why your subjects appear so natural in these photos. You have a very calm, welcoming, humble demeanor and I'm sure that plays a large part in allowing your subjects to feel relaxed. As I'm sure you know, there's so much more to people photography than having great gear. These portraits are even more special to me now. Wonderful work !

I don't think we can go back to that country in the foreseeable future. Thank you for stopping by, Lou!

I love the kids. They are alive in these pictures. The spirits in them cannot be find in studio.

IN #1 the juxtaposition of the boy in focus and building object in background is great and reminds me of your excellent shot of the Bromo volcano shot in Indonesia. What is it with the face cream? Is it for decoration or sunblock or both?
