MYANMAR---After picking up my visa and exchanging some U.S. dollars for kyat I stepped out of the airport into the steam that is Yangon, Myanmar, during the monsoon season. We get to the monastery in a matter of minutes. "We need to hurry," I hear from the front seat as we pull in. I jump out and move up the walkway as my lenses fog from the humidity. Then there they were. Thus I began photographing the Novice Monks of Myanmar. [link]
