Touchdown in the early hours in Mae Sot after the usual frozen experience on the night bus from Bangkok with antarctic temperature air conditioning as always. The wet season is in full swing and its humid. Head straight to the office to catch up with everyone at AAPP and start the planning. It’s great to be back and finally get this show completely on the road. This is the start of potentially a lifetime’s journey that will take in Thailand, Japan, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, Singapore… and Burma itself. The end date is when all Burma’s political prisoners are freed – unconditionally. The idea?… simple… photograph former political prisoners from all over the world and on their hand is written the name of an existing political prisoner. A global campaign in the making to bring this injustice into the living rooms of everyone, everywhere. Even though I’m free I am not.
