Of Nuns and Monks 1

Buddhist Monk

“Morning Prayer” / Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon / July 2016

Myanmar, July 2016:  Myanmar is one of the most religious countries in Asia.  Buddhist of the Theravada tradition dominate the population and, indeed, are very visible in the Myanmar people’s daily lives, from its religious center, the Shwedagon Pagoda to its remotest villages.  Coming from a different culture, Buddhist monks and nuns, attract my camera anywhere.  This series features some of the shots I collected on this visit.
