Faces of Burma

Geoff Croll takes you to Faces In Burma: A series of portraits of people in Burma. Mynamar. 03/03/2010.

Encounter men wearing skirt-like longyi, women smothered in thanaka (traditional make-up) and betel-chewing grannies with blood red juices dripping from their mouths – and that’s just the airport! Meet the multi-talented monks who have taught their cats to jump. Ride a Wild West stagecoach past grand British mansions. Trade jokes about the rulers who move capitals on the whim of a fortune teller. Indeed, this is Burma.

Isolated and ostracised by the international community, the country is in the grip of tyrants.

Connect with a culture where holy men are more revered than rock stars and golden buddhas are bathed every day at first light.Burma a land of amazing people
