Man In Shanty House

Man sitting in shanty house

A man who stripped to his waist sat in a shanty house

Shot in Dalah, Myanmar.

All the houses in this village were shanty houses. When I saw them, I realized that people called this area a shanty town in Yangon. Although the downtown was emerging, this village seemed to be left behind in the wave of development. However, I found a small evidence of the development. In spite of having no electricity in this village, I saw some solar panels attached to some of the dwellings. So some dwellers could watch TV and charge the smartphones.

Walking around the village, I came to a shanty house which had a corrugated metal roof. Seemingly, there was no solar panel here. And a man who was stripped to his waist sat at the entrance of the house. He raised one knee and put his arm on it. He had a sour face. While other men worked, he seemed to be worklessness. The feelings of doom made him notice me.
