Now, for the first time ever, the rich culture, stunning landscapes and diverse peoples of the country are presented in a unique visual time capsule. Here is the new Myanmar as seen over a single week by a team of thirty famous photographers from eleven different countries. Their mission? To capture the life and spirit of Myanmar from every angle in every corner of the country. Through the downtown streets of Yangon and the handicraft centers of Mandalay, above the temple-dotted plains of Bagan and on the waters of Inle Lake, inside border towns and hill tribe villages and all the way to the furthest reaches of the north and south.
