Photographer's Note

The busy fish market in Sittwe is a must to see, so many fish, so much action, so much filth. The atmosphere is vibrant. A wonderful place.
Sittwe is situated on the Bay of Bengal, close to Bangladesh, many of the fishermen are moslim, both coming from Bangladesh more than 200 years ago or Burmese moslims.
Sittwe was also the town in which the recent peaceful protests began.
