This short video I made to draw attention to my new book Burmese Light, a collaboration with my friend and author Tom Vater. All scenes were filmed while I was on location shooting stills for the book.
About the book:
Photographer and publisher Hans Kemp (Bikes of Burden, Ardent Eye, Carrying Cambodia...) has created a book of superb quality that vividly captures the varied textures of this amazing land and its people. Hans and writer Tom Vater (Beyond the Pancake Trench, The Devil’s Road to Kathmandu, The Cambodian Book of the Dead...) travelled throughout Burma and recorded their often arduous journey in fascinating style.
"Whether you are planning a visit or have recently traveled to Myanmar, Hans Kemp's magnificent photographs combined with Tom Vater's illuminating text create an unforgettable portrait of a truly remarkable country where light, landscape and culture leave an everlasting impression." --Art Wolfe, Renowned photographer and TV host of Travels to The Edge
"...a visually stunning look at the cultural, geographic, archaeological and ethnic diversity and beauty of a country only now stepping out of the shadows." --Bangkok Post
