Burma, Land of Shadows: A production of Magnum in Motion with photographs and video by Chien-Chi Chang.
“The Burmese continue to live a real-life version of Animal Farm. When I posed as a tourist to make these pictures, there always seemed to be shadows following me. Big Brother has many little brothers.”
