Photo by Chien-Chi Chang @chien_chi_chang / @magnumphotos. Laiza. 2010. Myanmar has an official military, but this is not it. The Kachin Independence Army was mounted by one of the country's 135 ethnic minorities, all of whom prize their identities. The armies seek to maintain the autonomy of their resource-rich homelands in the face of interference from the government. Sporadic fighting has been continuing in Kachin rebel held area despite an all out effort to have the nationwide ceasefire agreement signed well before the General Elections scheduled for November 2015. #Myanmar #Kachin #Laiza #soldier #rebel

This photo represents the prominent symbol of Kachin unity and culture. The traditional Manaw poles are decorated in colourful Kachin motifs, centered in the middle of the Manaw festival ground where people dance around a bonfire in front of the Manaw poles wearing the best traditional costumes.

Cresting a mountain pass on a freshly bulldozed road, Indawgyi Lake and its valley appear below, pastoral and calm. The lake, one of the largest freshwater bodies in Southeast Asia, reflects the clouds. A plaid quilt of rice paddies is squeezed between the water and jungled mountains. Besides a few spindly cellphone towers, there are few signs of the globalization swamping #Myanmar as the nation opens itself after half a century of isolation. For centuries, the indigenous #Kachin people in Myanmar’s remote north planted rice when the lake flooded their fields during the monsoon, fished its waters and hunted its wetlands and the surrounding mountains. Today, every morning and afternoon, fishermen still paddle out, singing Burmese songs to themselves, trailing gillnets with soda bottle buoys. But despite the encircling mountains and buffering remoteness, Indawgyi Lake is straining under many of the same environmental and conflict-related challenges that are stressing the fragile nation.

I've been keeping this a secret from everyone until now.
God has blessed me through His promise. I wouldn't be able to do it without you. I promise to fulfill my promise to you too.
A big thanks to all my girls from the pageant, all the sponsors for their generosity and all those who have helped me throughout this journey. THANK YOU! ☺️

This is the second story that I will present this week. It is a story about the war in Kachin state, Myanmar.

I visited Kachin several times in the past few years. The challenge of this story was how to get access, get good pictures and survive. The key was to make good connections and go to the right places at the right times. Having said that, I still missed some images I wanted for the story.
Caption:
A cemetery near Laiza. Since the Kachin war begun in late 2011, no reports have been given by both armies on the number of deaths. For KIA soilders who died in the field, very few have had their bodies brought back. Majority of them get buried in the battle field.

A Kachin boy plays with a toy gun. Many young Kachin boys are recruited as soldiers, some as young as 14 years old. This building in Bunsi Ba on the Northern Shan State is a former Chinese hotel run by a casino. When the war started, the casino went bankrupt and have since become a refugee camp. More than 150,000 people have been displaced since the war began in 2011.

This is a wasteland after heavy mining from a large scale Chinese owned gold mine. This land used to be a Kachin village named Mai Sakpa but has been empty since the war started. Most of people moved to refugee camps in Laiza out of fear of attack from the Burmese Army. Daring Chinese businessmen who are brave try to benefit as much as they can by working in the conflict area.

Chinese trucks loaded with teak and log from Sagai Division in Northern Myanmar. These illegal logging businesses are well known to the Myanmar Authorities. The Chinese companies choose to pass the KIA controlled area as they pay less than passing through Burmese checkpoints.
