Rohingya

Posted in Burma, Portrait, Reportage

It is time for an exception. I re-post this portrait from 2010 now in colour. This is unusual for me but I would like to send out a message today.

Back in 2010, I was in Sittwe (Myanmar) on a market, a boy was going around. The people there, they did not appreciate his appearance on the market. The men hit him, this small Rohingya boy probably only was looking something to eat.

These days we learn the Rohingya’s are escaping from Myanmar, they are not welcome in Bangladesh and India. The world today still has dark sides far away from our safe homes, I hope the Rohinga’s find a safe harbour soon!
