Crumbling Burmese Architecture for WSJ Magazine

January 24th, 2013

In October of last year I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Burma to photograph at the behest of WSJ magazine. I was following in the footsteps of writer Tony Perrottet as he painted a vivid picture of the challenges surrounding the preservation of colonial architecture facing Yangon (formerly Rangoon) as it opens itself up to further tourism and regional investment.

The architecture in Yangon – and all the crumbling buildings – was like catnip for a photographer like me who absolutely loves photographing the spaces that we as people inhabit. I also had the good fortune of travelling on to Bagan and Inle Lake to explore more of the country.

I am planning on going back to Burma this year on a number of occasions (it is a bit of a commute) to continue photographing the country as part of a personal project.
