Bagan

by Farhad Rahman
 

Bagan is a photographic series that aproaches the city of Bagan - the ancient city of Myanmar that survives with 2200 of Pagodas, Temples and Stupas. The recent expansion of the tourism slowly altered the landscape, which used to be a spiritual atmosphere, to a more modern environment.
This visual exploration looks both at the mysticism that remains and the materialistic transformation of the place.

"Borders? I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people.", by Thor Heyerdahl

Security as one of the principal human needs has throughout history driven man to develop new ways to keep himself safe. One way used to ensure security has been to create territories in order to separate areas attributed to different groups of individuals. The means used to define these borders vary in function of the need to make of them a binding reality and mark a clear and distinct separation.
