"You wanna buy a suit?" "No thanks... Can I take your photo?" He smiled and posed for a photo. "What work do you do?" I told him what I do. "sit, sit." We sat and chatted for a good 20 mins, at the end I asked him again if I could take his photo and this was the result. Raffles Tailors, Singapore 2017

This is Soi Chan Wong. Shot at Pudu Wet Market in Kuala Lumpur. I was wandering around the area near my hotel, snapping away. I shot some photos of this lady here, Soi Chan Wong. She looked up and smiled so I showed her the photos I had taken and gave her a card so she could email me. A month or so later Soi Chan's daughter Kaz contacted me about the photos and I emailed them to her. Kaz told me she presented the photos to her Mum as part of her birthday present. As much as possible I try to give something back with photography. I've snapped so many candid photos of strangers who do not even know it. I reckon if you are taking someone's photo you have taken a moment from their life and therefore they should have that moment. I'm always conscious of that. In this case i'm glad i could give Soi Chan a small glimpse, a moment, of her life.

Myanmar 2015
So called because of the combination of the betel leaf and the areca nut. There are thousands of betel nut stalls all over Yangon. This one was in the Chinatown area. These betel quid makers have the green betel vine leaves laid out coated in the white lime paste. As well as the actual areca nut, they add an array of herbs and fillings, including tobacco,cloves, cinnamon, camphor, and cardamom seeds. I also saw them add a green liquid which is apparently some chemical. The Betel Nut stall are everywhere They are extremely fast at making these small packages or 'quids'. Myanmar 2015

Paul Theroux wrote this in 1973 in his book The Great Railway Bazaar and it sums up an aspect of Myanmar life perfectly. "Buddhism, the principle of neglect. Because no animals are killed all animals look as if they are starving to death, and so the rats, which are numerous in Burma, co-exist with the dogs, which have eliminated cats from the country. The Burmese – removing their shoes and socks for sacred temple floors where they will spit and flick cigar ashes – see no contradiction. How could they? Burma is a socialist country with a notorious bureaucracy. But it is a bureaucracy that is Buddhist in nature, for not only is it necessary to be a Buddhist in order to tolerate it, but the Burmese bureaucratic delays are a consistent encouragement to a kind of traditional piety – the commissar and the monk meeting as equals on the common ground of indolent and smiling unhelpfulness. Nothing happens in Burma, but then nothing is expected to happen." Not to knock the Myanmar people, who I found to be amongst the warmest and friendliest I have ever met. The photograph is of the early morning traditional Alms Round in Yangon, a procession of monks walk through the streets to receive offerings. Myanmar 2015.

Kalaw is a small hill town in the Shan State of Myanmar. It is a popular spot for trekking, I was there to travel on the train to Inle Lake. It was my first night in Kalaw, having arrived that afternoon by minibus from Bagan. After a few drinks in the Hi Bar, the only bar in Kalaw, I found myself walking past Than Aung's small gallery. Struck by the rich, vibrant colours, I was compelled to go in and take a look. His paintings, are amazingly bright and detailed, some of them almost caricature like, I was immediately impressed. Than Aung was happy for me to take his photograph as he described the different scenes in his paintings. I took his email and told him I would send this image to him. Myanmar 2015
This was shot in a very friendly wee place in Kalaw called the Hi Bar. I was there in July and there were elections happening in November. The place was full of locals who were happy to talk about the upcoming elections and the changes happening in Myanmar. Unsurprisingly most of them felt the elections would be rigged in some way. Being Scottish I identified with that sentiment.

Paan is a preparation combining betel leaf with areca nut and sometimes also with tobacco. It is chewed for its stimulant and psychoactive effects. After chewing it is either spat out or swallowed. Paan has many variations. Slaked lime (chunnam) paste is commonly added to bind the leaves. Some South Asian preparations include katha paste or mukhwas to freshen the breath. Myanmar 2015

Met this chap and his friend at the Dhammayazika Pagoda in Bagan. They let me take their photo and stood with a very serious look for the shot. Only when I showed him the image did he break into laughter and say, "Very Beautiful!". I wanted to capture him smiling and laughing, this was the attempt. Bagan, Myanmar 2015
So I snapped his photo, then asked if I could take a shot with my camera, to which he obliged. He had travelled from Yangon to Bagan, it wasn't his first time to the temples. Outside the Dhammayazika Pagoda, Bagan, Myanmar 2015

This was shot on my second day in Mandalay. I woke up early and went for a wander. I came across a market, took my camera out, and started snapping photos. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but it didn't take me long to realise that the Myanmar people are very friendly, and are not in any way bothered by me taking photos. These three motorbike taxi drivers, and this image, is an example of that friendliness. As I walked past them they shouted "Taxi?". I said "no thanks" and then said to them "Photo?". This was the reaction, big smiles. Myanmar 2015

If you want to experience multi-cultural Australia, hail a cab. I've met taxi drivers from many different countries and cultures while getting the (often necessary) late night taxi up the road. On the odd occasion when I have my camera on me (and probably fuelled by an evening's drinking) i'll snap a few shots, and on the odd occasion I get a good result. I wish I could tell you more about the evening which preceded this photo but I barely remember taking it... ;-/ Melbourne 2014 <a href="http://www.petersawers.com"rel="nofollow">www.petersawers.com</a> | <a href="https://twitter.com/bede66">Twitter</a> | <a href="https://www.facebook.com/petersawersphotography?ref=hl"rel="nofollow”>Facebook</a> | <a href="http://www.petersawers.com/about/”>About Me</a> | <a href="http://500px.com/petersawers"rel="nofollow">500px</a> | <a href="http://petersawers.tumblr.com"rel="nofollow">Tumblr</a> | <a href="http://instagram.com/petersawers">Instagram</a> | <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/peterjsawers/">Flickr</a>

"There's a truth that runs deeper than experience. Its beyond what we see, or even what we feel. Its an order of truth that separates the profound from the merely clever, and the reality from the perception. We're helpless, usually, in the face of it; and the cost of knowing, like the cost of knowing love, is sometimes greater than any heart would willingly pay. It doesn't always help us to love the world, but it does prevent us from hating the world. And the only way to know that truth is to share it, from heart to heart." Gregory David Roberts - Shantaram One of my friends contacted me saying he wanted to use an image of mine for an album cover. It's an image from Berlin. This prompted me to go through my Berlin images and I found this one from a photography exhibition we went to. I'm also reading Shantaram at the moment and the above quote jumped out at me. I'm not sure myself what the connection is. Make of it what you will, isn't that what art is after all.... Berlin 2013
