Zaw Zaw Co

Born: 1984
Hometown: Maubin, Ayeyarwaddy

Zaw Zaw Co’s Beyond the Living series show trishaw riders carrying passengers, set against the backdrop of maps of different parts of Myanmar. He hopes to highlight the working class and their place in writing the history of this country. The trishaw is a common mode of transportation in Myanmar. Both the trishaw riders and passengers represent the working class struggling to earn a living. Connected by time and money, the riders and passengers embark on their journeys together, carrying feelings of sorrow, pleasure, and hope. Slowly but surely, they are moving forward in their lives.
