New Facebook Page

Burma/Myanmar

I would like to invite you to follow my new Facebook page where I will post images and stories of my travel & documentary photography. In the future I will share my recent work as well as images from the archive, write about personal experiences and keep you updated on travels, adventures and interesting news in photojournalism and photography.

Fishermen wrap a paddle around one hand and leg and use this to propel the boat, while balancing precariously on the other. This position leaves them with one hand free, allowing them to drop a large conical net over passing fish in the shallow waters of the lake.
