Photo Essay: The People of Inle Lake

In addition to documenting the work of EE2 at Inle Lake, Myanmar, I also took the opportunity to snap photos of people living at the Lake.

Monks take a morning walk on the streets of Nyaungshwe town, Shan State, Myanmar.



A farmer tends to his farm which is built entirely on floating islands. The people living on Inle Lake travel completely by boat.



Children are free to row around on boats, visiting their relatives who live close to one another.


The roads around the lake consist of mostly mud tracks, and passengers riding on lorries need to wear masks to protect themselves against the dust.
