Myanmar: a Photographic & Cultural Exploration

November 9-21, 2014

13 days of exploration in Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake, Kalau, Pindaya and Yangon

November 21-25, 2014

5 day optional trip extension to the Golden Rock, Hpa An, and the Bago

Join renowned National Geographic photographer Michael Yamashita and me on a photographic exploration visiting the people and places of Myanmar.

We’ll mingle with a variety of ethnic groups: the colorful Shan, Palong, the unique leg rowing fishermen of Inle Lake, the burgundy-robed Theravada monks and, of course, the everyday citizens wearing simple sandals and lungis (sarongs). All this is highlighted against a spectacular background of natural and devotional beauty, from stunning rural landscapes to ancient temples and ruins.

The trip involves “easy touring,” but you should be in good enough physical shape to walk on remote rolling/hilly paths with a simple daypack and your camera gear for 3-5 hours. All levels of photographers are welcome, as well as non-photographing spouses.
