Watchful monk

Watchful monk

Darren Kwok, April 2011

Whilst wandering around Mandalay in Myanmar, I chanced upon an old teak monastery tucked away in the backstreets. I went in search of the gatekeeper and had the privilege of meeting this rather solemn senior monk. He let me in and showed me around without uttering a word, merely gesturing as the sole form of communication.
