Chan Chao. Photographer. Burmese. DC.

Chan Chao's family left Burma for the U.S when he was 12 years old... eighteen years later Chao returned to Burma to reconnect with the culture and people he had left... even after being denied a visa twice by the Burmese government, Chao continued on his journey to the Thai-Burmese border where he photographed Burmese pro-democracy students in refugee camps. Something Went Wrong puts a face to one of the most troubled and least understood countries of our world... a beautiful+interesting book of portraits.
