Myanmar: Beyond the Surface - The Book

<p>  </p> <p> “Myanmar Beyond the Surface” documents how Myanmar looks like after 60 years of military dictatorship and international isolation. I want to show how history has shaped the Myanmar society and tell the story of how the country and its people are changing since the regime started to open up to the world in 2011.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The last 2 years people from all layers of Myanmarese society have been photographed. Different people in different situations but all connected by their common past; a life in a dictatorship.</p> <p>  </p> <p> To document and share these stories with people around the world, I have worked together with renowned international journalists with thorough knowledge about Myanmar. All stories have been photographed and great background articles have been written. I have funded this project completely out of my own pocket, but to publish a book, I need help. With only 200 pre-orders we can go to print.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Help me to realize this book and give the people of Myanmar to the attention they deserve!</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FRN_aj6YNzeM%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DRN_aj6YNzeM%26feature%3Dyoutu.be&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FRN_aj6YNzeM%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>THE BOOK:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> The best reward of this campaign are 10 stories (in English language) from all layers of Myanmar's society bundled in 240+ pages of high-quality printing by Koopmans Printing.

À quoi servira la collecte

<p> Up till now the project has been funded completely out of my own pocket. The budget is only requiered for the printing &amp; lithography cost of the book incl. 8% fee for crowdfunding platform.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>€ </strong><strong>11.880,-- </strong>Printing &amp; lithography</p> <p> <strong>€      950,-- </strong>8% crowdfunding platform fee.</p> <p>  </p> <p> This budget is needed to print 200 books. If more money is raised it will be used to print more books. These books will be sold. Any profit will be used to pay a small fee to the people that helped me during the project free of charge. With any remaining profit I will try and translate the stories into Burmese language and make it available to the people of Myanmar that do not speak English.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>* IMPORTANT, SHIPPING COSTS:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> The prices are excluding shipping costs. Shipping costs vary by country and so it is impossible to calculate this into one single book prize. </p> <p>  </p> <p> If the crowdfunding campaign is successful I will contact you personally how to deliver the book. In the regions Amsterdam (NL), Limburg (NL) and Yangon (MM) a pick-up or delivery can be arranged.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In other cases, it will be sent it by post or parcel service. I will communicate the shipping prize before shipping.</p> <p>  </p>
