Inle Lake, Myanmar

A placid ribbon of water, Inle Lake nestles snugly in the Nyaung Shwe Valley, east of the ancient Burmese capital of Bagan. Most of the people living on and around Inle are from the Intha tribe, one of Myanmar’s numerous ethnic groups. The Intha fishermen who patrol the waters of Inle during the day are perhaps the most iconic representatives of the fascinating local culture. Boasting a unique method of one-legged rowing, their curious silhouettes and careworn faces have graced a thousand postcards, inspiring more than a few sunrise and sunset photoshoots in the process.
