Rural life in Hsipaw, Northern Myanmar

After Mandalay I caught a bus north to Hsipaw. Leaving the popular tourist route behind, this was a week spent in a tranquil, rural area of Burma. I hired a motorcycle and explored the local area, shooting every dawn and dusk.

Fort Kochi, Kerala, India

I got up early and spent the morning exploring Fort Kochi as the sun slowly rose above the low rise buildings. Kids playing cricket while the temperatures were low, fresh fish on sale at the market, fishermen working the distinctive ‘Chinese nets’, richshaws spluttering around the tranquil streets.

Sweets & Shrines – Day of the Dead, Lake Patzcuaro, Mexico

This time two year ago I was in the Michoacán province of Mexico, photographing the details and ceremonies of the Day of the Dead festivities. Held every year on the 1st of November, Dia de los Muertos is a time for families and friends to come together and remember the dead. We hired a guide to take out during the night and visit the graveyards where families gathered for graveside vigils. I felt a little uncomfortable poking a camera into peoples faces but it was fascinating to see, most of the pictures below are of the Dia de los Muertos paraphernalia I came across during the trip, its a topic I’d like to revisit again sometime, perhaps concentrating on portraits of the younger generation all dressed up.
