I was commissioned by Vice to photograph and write an article on Myanmar’s historic election in 2015.

The photographs document the day unfolding and were all taken on the day of the election, November 8th 2015.

“We must cautiously walk forward,” were Aung San Suu Kyi’s words to supporters as they gathered outside the National League for Democracy (NLD) headquarters in Yangon, the day after Myanmar’s historic election vote. It was the first free election since the nominally civilian government was introduced in 2011, ending nearly 50 years of military rule. “Real victory must be for the country, not for a group or individuals,” she said.
