A connecting corridor was spanned over the Bogyoke Road. It connected between the modern shopping mall called Junction City and the traditional market called Bogyoke Aung San Market. Both the street and the market contained the word 'Bogyoke'. It is an honorific title in Burmese. Of course, it was entitled to the folk hero, Major General Aung San who is considered the Father of Myanmar.
Crossing the corridor, I entered into the Bogyoke Aung San Market. Although its name was derived from the national hero, the market was far-gone and messy. When I realized, I was in the area where many jewelers worked. This country is one of the major production areas of gems. Because many jewelry stores did business in this market, there was also the place where the jewel craftsmen worked. The man in this photo was one of them. He sat in the dim studio and seemed to get thinking about how he should manufacture. His expression was solemn.
