Taipei, Taiwan. 2008.
“All of my journeys have been the same. Journeys are defined by the things we carry. One night on the empty bed, I laid out what was at the heart of true travel. You can see the items in this picture. They remind me jokingly of a song by the singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, who talks about all he needs when he’s stuck in transit. For him, it’s lawyers, guns and money. And me? It’s cameras, fixers, money and a little bit of chocolate.” #MagnumPhotos#MagnumSquarePrint#cccontheroad

Graz, Austria. While looking at the decoration of the kids' room at home on a Sunday afternoon, I thought of a paragraph in a recent book–Jet Lag. The book is in my hand and here is the excerpt; "This coveted profession is prone to all sorts of unexpected hazards: Some natural, a lost footing and a slide down a muddy dangerous cliff; some political, the occasional jail detention; some personal, an exhausted collapse in a lonely bathroom in New Zealand. The list goes on, and all these mishaps may be considered the usual and unlucky byproducts of the profession. But the real damage I would learn was at home, where a marriage died." #MagnumPhotos#cccontheroad

A silver printer needs a big wingspan to hang a wet print. Here at Griffin Editions, Mike Wood continues printing The Chain. The highlight may dry down about 10% but Mike's shirt will remain the same. After almost 20 years, I am still "chained" to The Chain. And you have a chain, too. #MagnumPhotos#TheChain#cccontheroad

The time was 1996 and the location Hsinkang, in central Taiwan. Rain or shine, each spring in Taiwan, followers of Taoist saint Matsu make a pilgrimage to commemorate her birthday (she would have been 1062 this year). The procession creeps along from temple to temple on a seven day, 280 kilometer journey through central Taiwan. Upon reaching their destination, performers wearing lion masks dance and dance in front of the temple. This image will be in an upcoming exhibition, please stay tuned for the detailed info. Thanks!#LionDance#cccontheroad#MagnumPhotos
Taipei, Taiwan, 1999. Oblivious to the pouring rain, a lone dancer performs in the street as a protest to the Taipei city government, which decided to demolish their dance studio to build a high-rise office complex. This image will be in an upcoming exhibition, please stay tuned for the detailed info. Thanks!#cccontheroad#MagnumPhotos

Yangon, Myanmar, 2016. Burma used to be the land of shadows, both figuratively and literally speaking. Nevertheless in the last five years, it has opened up to the outside world and with its first democratically-elected leadership, the expectation has been high for a new, democratic and prosperous Myanmar. It is, however, a daunting task for decades to come. Here in Yangon, the former capital and the largest city in the country, there have been ubiquitous generators all over the city to battle the constant power shortage. #MagnumPhotos#Yangon#cccontheroad
The Price of Isolation, a project on Burma, was made possible with Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund. Now is its annual fund-raising campaign, I made my donation. I hope you will make a contribution to Magnum Foundation as well. Link above. Many thanks.
Sittwe, Myanmar, 2016. A few times a day, the train with one carriage travels through the Internally Displaced People (IDP) area. Inside the train, the racial segregation is evident; the Rohingya can only sit in the middle area of the train while Buddhists and armed security staff stay in compartments on both ends. Additionally, Rohingya can only travel within fenced off area. Human Rights Watch has likened the separation to apartheid. The Rohingya inside IDP have given up hope that their internment in the camp will end soon. #MagnumFoundation#MagnumPhotos#Rohingya#IDP#cccontheroad
