That sink don't look too healthy...

Seriously good photos, Michael. I can see that there is a b+w sensibilty at work in most of them but the colour is so seductive too, especially in numbers 1, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12 & 17.

Like PKR, I look forward to seeing more...

Rogrund 09-22-2010 03:11

Great pictures, Michael! Looking forward to see more...

Mister E 09-22-2010 03:50

As always great work! I hope to make it to Burma in November.

Very nice and interesting pictures. What kind of camera, lenses and film (?) did you use? That part of the world has so many interesting things to photograph.

Great picture Michael!

Great photos. I remember seeing some photos before (maybe from you), showing the white coloring on faces; a religious festival I think?

Do all the people wear such colorful clothing? I remember from my first time in Korea, traveling in the countryside and noting colorful clothing amid the drabness of the surrounding farmland.

Mablo 09-22-2010 05:10

The whitish powder on the faces of women and children is called "Tanaka spots". It's made of tree bark and people use it extensively as a skin protect and I assume it's fashionable as well. I haven't seen it used nowhere else in SE Asia.

shadowfox 09-22-2010 06:12

Michael, these are pure inspiration.
Some of the best color photos I've seen this year.

Honestly, I think those entries in the COLOR magazine pales compared to these (and I am being nice).

michaelbialecki 09-22-2010 07:28

Thanks again guys.....i really appreciate it.....

Mablo is right about the Tanaka......The Burmese use it daily and some of the people like to "style it up" a little......I have seen many people apply it and it is always interesting (at least to me) to watch them put it on.....

As far as equipment goes....I used 2 Leica bodies (m6ttl/m2) and (15 cv/ 28 elmarit/ 35 1.2 nokton/ 50mm rigid/ 90 summicron)...the film was mostly Kodak Pro Image 100 and a couple rolls of Fuji Pro II 100.......
