Faces from Myanmar

Many of the people of Myanmar are particularly handsome.Most men and women still wear the traditional longi-long skirt-everyday and there is no sign at all of western "slut wear"-yet.They are deeply religious and the women are modest and restrained in their dress and their behaviour.Many men and women wear a tree bark dust known as thanaka on their faces as a cosmetic and sunscreen.
Myanmar is truly quite unlike any place you know about.
So many wonderful photo opportunities and so many smiling people.Leica X1 photos Dec 2012.
