Monica’s photographs blur the distinction between cultural documentation and artistic portraiture.They begin with a personal connection made while travelling through Burma and evolve from the people and their immediate environment. The individuals live in remote regions far from the changes wrought by industrial development, with a traditional culture that remains linked to the past and the intangible spirit of their homeland. The images transcend the subjects themselves to acknowledge their participation in a world of extraordinary resonance and harmony, humming within lives most ordinary.
