Thailand Day 17: Portraits of a Generation

Click here to view the Generation Wave Portraits

Students have long played an important role over the past decades in shaping the struggle for democracy in Burma. Generation Wave are just another generation of those students that came before them, standing up for what they believe in, in spite of the severe repercussions they face – you can read more about Generation Wave here from a previous post on this blog from a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been staying here at the Generation Wave safe house with my little sister and the rest of GW for much of the past two weeks – it’s quiet, away from the prying eyes and I can get a lot of work done as well as relax and have some fun at the same time. Today we decided to do just that and tried some portraits – they were keen to try to include the style in my political prisoner portraits and it’s quite funny really when you think that their logo is also a hand, so I came up with an idea to use it to cover their faces in the portraits (they have to remain anonymous for obvious reasons).
