    Emerging from decades of isolation and military rule, Myanmar is full of endless contradictions and surprises. At a traditional old teak pagoda in Inwa (Ava), a Buddhist monk agreed to sit for a portrait. As we took pictures, his three novices disappeared, only to reappear clutching a couple of smart phones and document their own interpretation.

    Charlotte- when I originally started thinking about the idea of this assignment, I wanted people to push the boundaries of what exploration meant. For me, this photo is beautiful because it captures what it means to be exploring an ever changing world where technology mixes with tradition. The lighting is soft, the moment is sweet and it leaves me feeling hopeful. Great job.
