The Atlantic Monthly is partnering with Frontline World/ Flash Point in featuring audio slide shows narrated by the photographers of photo-essays published in the magazine.

Portraits along the Burmese Thai border from his book “Something Went Wrong”

Chan Chao traveled along Myanmar’s border with Thailand and India on a personal assignment to rediscover his roots. His family migrated to the United States when he was 12 and he wanted to learn more about his own culture. In the process, he documented portraits of people he met; trying to portray the long-suffering people’s hope against the military regime. Months after his work, many of the places he went to were overran and razed by the army.

It’s difficult to imagine how she had the access to make these images of young girls who work as prostitutes in Bangladesh.
