It is a romantic feast upon the nation’s most famous spots for beautiful sunrises and enchanting ancient temples. Furthermore, Laurent brings us views of rural village life enveloped in hazy clouds, further adding to the mystery of the gorgeous scenery. Stilt houses are reflected in the water they’re suspended above; a fisherman balances between his boat and the delicate lake that converges with misty hills in the background. Adding context to his sister series, The last tattooed women of Burma, there’s no doubt that these pictures will entice and delight. A visit to Myanmar is in order.
