9789628563708: Burmese Light: Impressions of the Golden Land (Burma - Myanmar)

Burmese Light: Impressions of the Golden Land (Burma - Myanmar) is a photographic introduction to Burma or Myanmar, as the country is currently called, the mysterious land behind the Bamboo Curtain. Stunning images by award-winning photographer Hans Kemp, paired with an insightful text by well-known author Tom Vater, take the reader on a journey through a fascinating country slowly but steadily emerging from a long period of involuntarily isolation. The 208-page book features all the country's famous sights, its colorful people and its multitude of customs, and leaves the reader with only one wish: to pay a visit to this amazing Golden Land.

About the Author :

Award winning freelance photographer Hans Kemp has been based in Asia for over twenty years. His editorial work has been published to great acclaim in a wide variety of international newspapers and magazines such as GEO, Sud Deutsche Zeitung, Time, Panorama, Asahigraph, Reader's Digest, and many others. He has published several books of his work, of which perhaps the best known to date is the best-selling Bikes of Burden, about the motorbike culture in Vietnam. Tom Vater has written nonfiction and fiction books, travel guides, documentary screenplays, and countless feature articles investigating cultural and political trends and oddities in Asia. His stories have appeared in publications such as the Asia Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, The Times, Marie Claire, Penthouse, and The Daily Telegraph. He co-wrote The Most Secret Place on Earth, a feature documentary on the CIA's secret war in Laos, which has been broadcast in twenty-five countries. His bestselling book Sacred Skin, the first English language title on Thailand's sacred tattoos, has received more than thirty reviews.

Review :

"Kemp and Vater have taken an accurate, sensitive and contemporary picture of Burma...
...you will feel your armchair blaze in shades of Burmese jade and gold, as long as you will keep this volume open on your lap. This book is a necessary addition to the libraries of all those who consider themselves to be lovers of Southeast Asia."
Marco Ferrarese on the Vagabonding blog

First up, let's get this out there: Burmese Light is the best photo-travelogue that I have read or browsed through in 2013 or nearly any year for that matter. Yes! It is simply that good. (The Advisor Cambodia, January 11, 2014)
