While travelling in the small village of Shwe Nyaung Bin in Northern Myanmar we visited a local family weaving both with old machine looms and foot pedal hand looms. This series of images gives us glimpses of creating their colorful and delicate fabric.

I have always appreciated photography and began my own journey years ago refining my eye for seeing, respecting, and capturing the beauty around me. I have found myself drawn to photo essays since still photography is a powerful way to translate conditions and experiences between different cultures. I am motivated and dedicated to using my skills as a photographer to tell powerful and meaningful stories that evokes an understanding and/or action.
