List stevemccurryofficial's Instagram I photographed this young child with thanaka on his face in Bagan, Burma/Myanmar. Thanaka is a paste made from tree bark, and while often used as decoration, it also provides protection from sunburn. It is applied in patterns and designs. 1458039956441347793_1463412041

List stevemccurryofficial's Instagram I photographed this novice monk studying Buddhist writings in the late afternoon at a monastery in Aranyaprathet, Thailand, near the border with Cambodia. I watched the changing light as the monks went about both the mundane and sacred duties of their day. With the simple use of wood and fabric, of shades of saffron from mustard gold to deep orange, their environment was serene. 1453740157785151458_1463412041
