Entry Description

These group of children of about 15-20 of them are the last of it's kind to still keep this traditional Burmese hairstyle. Imagine Myanmar (Burma) has a population of approximately 60 million people but only left 15-20 in the entire country to have this hairstyle! It's certainly vanishing hairstyle and culture!

About Photographer

Travel & Documentary Photographer based in Singapore. Jino started off as musician and turned sound engineer before taking up photography late at age 35. He quickly learned the ropes by assisting in two commercial studios and being mentored in the event and wedding photography business by several experienced photographers. But his true passion in photography has always been in Travel and Documentary. In the same year that he took up photography, he bit the bullet and went full time in photography. Within three years, he worked his way into the Canon organisation as resident photography instructor and workshop leader. Jino has also won several accolades since then.
