I photographed this Hill tribe man in Yangon back when Aung San Suu Kyi was still on house arrest and would be for the next 15 years. I thought it was really interesting seeing this hill tribe man set against this weathered wall in this crazy city just taking a rest. I am guessing by his age that his tattoo's were not done in a studio and his leg tattoo's indicate he is from a hill tribe. I didn't get to experience any indigenous cultures in Myanamar as the government had closed off all travel to those parts of the country. During this time I only shot with 35mm film and a 50mm lens. I would have to get really close to my subjects to get photographs like this.
