For a photographer who likes to photograph life and cultures, the most attractive thing is to visit different geographies of the world and photograph the different cultures there. Most of the time, exploring distant geographies takes place as a very distant possibility that remains in our dreams, as we can’t create time or budget and sometimes both in daily life practice. As a photographer, I had the chance to made a photography trip that I had dreamed of in 2019 and made a photography trip to Myanmar. Myanmar is a closed country and culture that has not been open to the outside world for a long time. During my trip, I photographed this culture that capitalism hasn’t uniformize yet under the name of globalization. What I have seen has become a country that is very distant and different not only in terms of its geographical distance but also culturally, in terms of belief and life practices. Also it is so close and similar to our country with the warmth and benevolence of the people. In this project, I invite you to experience this geography, architecture, culture and life styles from my perspective.
