Photographers share "7 Days" Of Experiences Travelling the Country
Earlier this year, 30 leading photographers from 11 different nations were offered a challenging assignment: capture the Myanmar of today as it emerges from five decades behind closed doors.
The fruits of that seven-day-assignment are contained in 300 stunning photos in "7 Days in Myanmar", a coffee book that is being launched today at the Chartroom Hotel in Yangon.
During their week of shooting from April 27 to May 4, the lensmen captured the very life and spirit of Myanmar from every angle and in every corner of the country.
The book and the exhibition that accompanies it invite the viewer to witness the challenges and process of documenting one of the world's most exciting destinations. From Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw to remote destinations in the hills and coastal regions, the captivating diversity of this ancient land is introduced.
Wandering through Yangon's downtown streets and Mandalay's handicraft centres, above the temple-dotted plains of Bagan and on the waters of Inle Lake, the photographers have created a portrait of a nation full of natural beauty, old world charm, deep spirituality and new hope.
