“Photo gallery in the streets of Nyaung Shwe for landscapes and cultural photos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

We came across Kyaw Kyaw Win's gallery by accident when filling in some free time in Nyaung Shwe wandering round the backstreets of the town, and spent a happy 45mins looking at all the big prints he had on display in his gallery: lots of beautiful shots of landscapes and views of the lake (sunsets, sunrises, the fishermen, birds) and surrounding area (waterfalls, temples, local monks and villagers in traditional dress).

You can also purchase smaller souvenir versions, the smallest of which cost approx $7 (March 2013). We got a small version of a very nice photo of the fishermen on Inle Lake with great light and colours - we thought it would fit nicely into our backpack and would not be spoilt while travelling, but would have liked to buy a larger one for our house if we had just been on a short holiday.

We met the photographer, and what I particularly liked about this guy was that he had a project to visit and photograph one by one the different tribes of Myanmar, recording their village life, their traditions and traditional dress. He had one book about the Yinn people already on show and he was planning a trip to Chinn state when I visited in March 2013. I thought it was great that he wanted to use his talent to conserve information about the different ethnic groups in Myanmar.

“Talented local photographer Kyaw Kyaw Win”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

Off the main street in Nyang Shwe this is the gallery of local photographer Kyaw Kyaw Win. He has produced an excellent book of the Yinn tribes people - you see them in the market with colorful headgear. Kyaw is charming and educated and his images are a lovely souvenir of the region.
