Photographer's Note

Monastère de Nat Taung.
Je savais avant d’aller au Myanmar que je voulais aller dans ce magnifique monastère en teck, entièrement sculpté. Et je savais que je voulais faire cette photo, mais j’aurais préféré un moine.
J’avais en effet vu une photo à peu près semblable dans un livre de Olivier Follmi.
Mais les moines étaient dehors, et malgré mon envie, je n’ai pas osé aller leur demander si l’un d’entre eux accepterait de poser pour moi. Alors, j’ai pris le touriste que j’avais sous la main, il ne vous reste plus qu’à imaginer un moine à sa place.
Je n’avais pas mon trépied, alors je me suis mise en 1600 isos, et j’ai arrêté ma respiration pour essayer de ne pas bouger


Nat Taung monastery.
I knew before going to Myanmar that I wanted to go to this magnificent monastery in teak, completely sculptured. And I knew that I wanted to make this photo, but I would have preferred a monk.
I had indeed seen an about similar photo in Olivier Follmi's book. But the monks were outside, and in spite of my envy, I did not dare to go to ask them if one of them would agree to pose for me. Then, I took the tourist whom I had under the hand, you do not have more than to imagine a monk on his place.
I didn’t take my tripod, then I stopped my breath not to move.
