Much has changed in Burma since Birgit Neiser first visited in 1981.The country is now known as Myanmar, and military rule - which lasted nearly half a century - has given way to a tentative democratic process. Returning in 2010, at the cusp of this groundbreaking shift, Neiser began spending two months each year in Myanmar. To document ways of life she knew would soon start to disappear and to reach areas inaccessible to the casual visitor, the author travelled across the country - on the back of timber trucks in the mountains of Kachin state, by motorbike in northern Shan State, and onboard an old fishing vessel in the Andaman Sea. The result is Catching the Light - a dazzling collection of photographs that captures a unique moment in Myanmar's social, cultural, and political history. AUTHOR: Birgit Neiser is a German photographer who divides her time between Germany and Australia. Her work has been exhibited in London, Munich, Sydney and in the National Museum in Yangon. "Although Myanmar is a country full of colour, I chose black and white images for this book because they provide a deeper insight into the country's soul than colourful travel images of the main tourist attractions." - Birgit Neiser 153 illustrations with 1 map

Largely isolated from the world for more than four decades, Myanmar has made a remarkable return to the global stage following a political transformation that represents a watershed moment in the country's history. Now, for the first time ever, the rich culture, stunning landscapes and diverse peoples of the country are presented in a unique visual time capsule. Here is the new Myanmar as seen over a single week by a team of thirty famous photographers from eleven different countries. Their mission? To capture the life and spirit of Myanmar from every angle in every corner of the country. Through the downtown streets of Yangon and the handicraft centres of Mandalay, above the temple-dotted plains of Bagan and on the waters of Inle Lake, inside border towns and hilltribe villages and all the way to the furthest reaches of the north and south. The portrait they created reveals a nation full of natural beauty, old-world charm, deep spirituality and new hope. Featuring essays that provide context on Myanmar’s history and culture and hundreds of outstanding original photographs, 7 Days in Myanmar shows why the world is watching Myanmar and why Myanmar is ready for the world.

Myanmar: a Memoir of Loss and Recovery traces two journeys: a geographical journey and an inner journey. The author travels alone around Myanmar over several years and gradually comes to terms with the illness and subsequent death of her husband, Richard. Though painfully sad at times, these journeys of discovery and recovery celebrate their life together. Not speaking the language in Myanmar prompts many humorous incidents and her grief dispels as she finds ways to regain happiness.
