This smartly designed piece of photojournalistic work follows New Zealand photographer Connew on a journey into the Burmese jungle as he spends time covering the Karen Rebels--a minority group in Burma who oppose the ruling elite. Connew's photography is excellent, his writing engaging, and the emotional impact of this work undeniable.
