Yangon today

This work has been made between 2008 and 2012 in Myanmar, specifically in Yangon the capital.
At that time the country was entering in a democratic process by a slow evolution from Junta to a new government. The Burmese society was passing from a traditional society to what we call a modern society. My purpose was to notice in the public spaces what where the signs of this evolution, which emblematic images I could keep from this particular time.

During that time I was teaching documentary photography to members of civil society around Myanmar threw the organization of the Yangon Photo Festival. Please find the link bellow presenting stories made by Burmese photographers at the same time.
