From the dazzling heights of the 100-metre Gogteik Viaduct to the sparkling light reflected off Mount Kyaiktiyo’s Golden Rock, Hans Kemp’s Burmese Lights captures some of Myanmar’s most treasured sights.

The 208-page illustrated travel book documents the journey of photographer Hans Kemp and writer Tom Vater as they explore this vast land “of lost cities, crumbling pagodas, mountainous lakes, beautiful beaches and remote jungle”.

“It’s called Burmese Light because I sensed a special quality to the light in the country and my aim was to capture that special light,” said Kemp. “Tom’s writing is a personal narrative of our journey, just as is my photography.”
