Statement of intent"The Bagan Region, Burma"I have visited Burma seven times over the past fourteen years, getting to know the people and their country. In the central plains region is the Bagan area, renown for it's temples and monasteries dating from the 9th to 13th centuries. It is an area predominantly populated by ethnic burmese.I want to show, that although the ancient religious buildings are central to Bagan and may have changed little in the past 600 years, it is the people that are important to an area. Many children have a buddhist religious education, even if most go on to lead secular lives. This area has a young population and many follow lifestyles that may on the surface appear to date from a past era, however modern influences are starting to encroach. I hope to show a sense of the burmese from this area, which is changing rapidly as the country opens up.
