Photographer's Note

Rangoon, the capital city of British Burma, is so unique and evocative for it has a certain backwater charm. Rising from the city's cracked and chaotic streets is an extraordinary collection of colonial buildings which were erected in the late 19th century, some elegant, some imposing, some delicate, but nearly all are neglected. The variety of building styles is astounding, colonial architects brought with them the fashions of the decade, often mixing the latest European styles with Oriental influences creating a dramatic and eclectic cityscape.

This decaying facade of a British era building at Anawratha Road, has probably vanished into thin air by now....
