Sara Heinrich: Myanmar

Image Copyright © Sara Heinrich - All Rights Reserved

Sara Heinrich's website is a commercial one through which, not only showcases her work, but also sells her photographic services (wedding, etc) and her photographs of Myanmar, or Burma.

She doesn't divulge much of her background on the website's biography section, and although she might not describe herself as being a travel photographer, her photographs of Myanmar are certainly worth featuring on TTP.

While many of the photographs are of Burmese children with thanaka on their tiny faces, there are others of landscapes, of Buddhist monks and of Bagan temples. The clarity of Sara's photographs is such that it's almost as if I am seeing the real thing rather than a photograph.

I don't really like galleries with both black & white and color photographs, but that's a personal view and some of Sara's B&W photographs are really good. I chose this color photograph of novices in Bagan. It must have been posed because of all the candles, but the contrasting expressions of the two novices are wonderfully natural and spontaneous. A talented and very capable photographer, perhaps Sara will continue her travel photography work. I certainly hope so.

Sara's gallery of Myanmar is here.
