THE OPEN Award: Photo Story

3rd Prize

Hawkers in the darkness

Zay Yar Lin



I'm a freelance photographer from Myanmar. I'm quite honored to be one of the Nikon Photo Contest Winners. I would like to say thanks to Nikon Photo Contest and all the judges who have done a difficult job for choosing winners. I'm happy to get a chance to present this hidden culture and stories of hawkers in a remote place. They are really inspiring and wonderful people for their families. They used to walk a very long way from their home village to the city. But, they never show up their disappointment. They always bring encouragement to support their families.
