This collection of images was taken during my trip to the remote Chin State in northwest Myanmar, an area rarely frequented by tourists. I was part of a team from Sight For All who were equipping two eye centres in the region, assisting the local eye surgeons in their endeavours to reduce the disturbing level of blindness in the country. I encountered many wonderful characters during the four-day journey, a few of whom I captured and would like to share with you.
James is the chairman and founder of the Australian NGO Sight for All (http://sightforall.org), which works to develop high impact and sustainable solutions to both treat and prevent blindness in Australian Aboriginal communities and developing Asia, an area that is home to half of the World's blind. The photographs in his book, Visions of Myanmar, were taken and compiled during his surgical teaching trips to the country as part of Sight For AllÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Vision Myanmar Program.
