Shy Monks

2005 International Photography Exhibition
“Shy Monks"
Location: Shan State, Myanmar (Burma)
Photographer: David Lansing
Category: People
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "This is a photograph of two monks who couldn't resist checking out a strange Westerner who wandered into their village. Every child in Burma seems to be a monk. They appear so stoic and devout from a distance, but up close, they're just kids."
