Photos: The changing face of Burma

Post by Admin » Wed Oct 09, 2013 7:06 am

Portland based photographer Geoffrey Hiller first journeyed through Burma in 1987, and was immediately riveted by the strangers he encountered there.

"After a frenetic trip, it wasn’t so much the monks and pagodas that haunted me, but the faces of the Burmese, painted in white, often smiling," he wrote in an email to the Huffington Post. "I wanted to find out more about who they really were, plagued by a corrupt and isolationist military dictatorship."
