Photographer's Note

photo by James Bezzi

Typical foot-rowing on Inle lake

A tribute to James and Elisa

He took this photo
But he never had the chance to see it.
He sank in the water of Kaladan river two years ago
With his wife and other five people

He left part of the luggage and his rolls of films
In a hotel in Sittwe
This is why we have this images

He organized
several of my slideshow
In our city
And with his last unviewed images
I greeted them the last time
Commenting his trip
Like he was there
Always smiling
In the same place
where we met monthly

That November
We had a sort of date
On the Arakan coast
But they didn’t come
(I arrived there from another place)
And only at home I knew why.

This photo is a tribute to James Bezzi and his wife Elisa Ferracin killed with other three italians and two locals by a cyclone who overturned their boat near Mrauk-U while they’re on the way back to Sittwe in November 2004.

Along my next journey in Myanmar I will visit again Mrauk-U...
