Send a thought.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's release on the 13th November is very welcome and a first step in the right direction. But this does not signify any political change in the country. There are still more than 2202 political prisoners in Myanmar (Burma.) and uncountable numbers of refugee's living and hiding along the borders and deep into neighbouring countries, further away from their home. None of the repressive laws allowing the dictatorship to detain people without trial and restrict freedom have been repealed following the election on 7th November.
Send a thought to the people of Myanmar, send a thought to the people struggling living as refugees, with no legal rights, in constant fear of detention, which could lead to fatal consequences.
Send a thought.

Babylon Beach Mat

My Babylon beach mat, lies awaiting my soft body to melt into its warm arms. Gently sinking into pure bliss, listening to the breath itself, like waves of the ocean, never ending.

About HumanKind

Throughout history, every generation of theorists, scientists and artists has
grappled with the ultimate quest: to understand and define the human condition.

Now our turn has come: We are looking for images that encompass the experiences
of being human in a social, cultural, and personal context. Images that tell
the story of what it means to be part of HumanKind - the bad, the good, the
beautiful, the ugly, the exotic, the mundane, and everything in between.

Drawn from online submissions, 120 images will be selected and exhibited at The
powerHouse Arena in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
HumanKind - presented by the New York Photo Festival - will be on show from
December 17 to January 20.
