I met Purb as I was photographing along the Oo River. I had been photographing children who were playing in the water when I saw Purb, who I also photographed. Purb was a local farmer who I got to know over the next few days, he was looking for investors in a guest house he was building and also sometimes gave rides to tourists for money. I ended up photographing several members of his family (sometimes in poor light) and also had dinner with the family on one insect filled night.
