Travel portrait of a young boy in Nyaung-U streets, Myanmar - A Lorenz Berna's picture

Local boy from the village of Nyaung-U, Bagan, wearing Thanaka paste on his face.
Thanaka has been used by Burmese women for over 2000 years and, to a lesser extent, also by men and boys. This powder, applied on the skin, gives a cooling sensation and provides protection from sunburn. It is made by grinding the wood and bark of the Murraya tree with a small amount of water.

Burmese Road female workers - Travel photography of Myanmar by Lorenz Berna

Travel Portrait of a Burmese young girl - Picture by Lorenz Berna from the Myanmar Photo Gallery of the Blog Travelphotospirit.com

Travel Portrait of a young Burmese Girl.
She was working on a local restaurant in the region of Bagan and quite shy to get her portrait taken. Being a man, it is not often easy to get female portraits, especially in traditional Asia. In this my partner often help the girls and women to feel at ease, in the company of another woman.

Young Burmese Boys of Bagan Region - Travel picture by photographer Lorenz Berna

Young boys in Myanmar live between traditions and modernity.
They still massively dress with the traditional Longyi and protect their cheeks with the Thanaka powder, while they surf on their smartphone, a cigarette on lips. With the opening of the country, the way of living of the new generation is slowly changing into a more universal culture.
On a photographic perspective, this moment offered an interesting composition. The long shadows of the boys resembled the traditional burmese puppets hanging in the first plan.

Myanmar Portait of a Padaung Woman -Giraffe woman- by photographer Lorenz Berna

Portrait of a Padaung Woman, also called Kayan Lahwi.
This etnic group commonly known as the Giraffe Women, are recognised by their brass neck coils, put on when they are only 5 years old. Traditionally they would remove the brass neck only for the placement of a longer one or for some medical reasons. However, it tends to disappear among the new generation who wants a more modern look.

Portrait of a Buddhist monk in Myanmar - Picture by Lorenz Berna

Everyday, students come to the master to learn the Wisdom of Buddha’s teaching. And it is with knowledge, humility and patience that he passes the way to Enlightment to anyone who desire to proceed on this Spiritual Path.

Happy time for burmese children - Travel photography by Lorenz Berna

This photo was taken near by a turistic area where many children, like this particular group of friends, were selling postcards or drawings to turists.
The seriousness and pity that these children used in order to get turists to buy, was quickly replaced by lightness and happiness after a brief playful time. With the games, the real nature prevails : they are not anymore poor or uneducated but only children who are eager to laugh and love.
