Classroom Portraits

My guest photographer today is Pyin Na Thiri, a novice monk at the Tat Ein Monastery in Shan State, Myanmar. The photo above is his self portrait. One of the teachers at the village’s primary school suggested one day that we take photos of all the students. To help keep this photo session orderly (Quite often when I take photos at the school, some of the boys will jump around, trying to jostle for position in front of the lens, and things get out of control!), she had the students sit in groups of two or three to pose for their picture. I asked my new photography assistant, Pyin Na Thiri, to help me take care of this task. The photos below are ones that he took of his classmates at the school, both during the sitting sessions, and later in the classroom.
