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!

Event of the day

January 2010 in Burma we arrived in Mrauk U, we traveled by plane and found out by seeing these boys we have missed the Solar Eclipse. They used video tape to “protect” their eyes, far from optimal but creative use of trash.

The atmosphere in the streets was amazing, the children where in a state of highly unusual excitement. Bellow some more impressions.

Today’s I missed the solar eclipse here sitting in some meeting. Later during the lunch break I did not saw such an excitement outside in the street.
