Everyone's a photographer

It's an odd phenomenon in Burma that, despite having been open to tourism since 2011, being white-skinned, blond and beardy still makes you a rarity, worthy of being photographed. This set of images were mostly shot from the hip without much thought to composition and have become some of my favourites. They began as a reaction to my awkwardness at being on the wrong side of the lens but soon became an enjoyable interaction with the locals who clearly found the whole situation as funny as I did.
