China has its Great Wall. Cambodia has Angkor Wat. Indonesia has Borobudur. Myanmar has Bagan, a city of temples on the banks of the Ayerawaddy River. Throughout much of its history, Burma has seen conflict and Bagan (formerly Pagan) has been fought over, conquered and suffered earthquakes, but has somehow survived. Poised serenely by the Ayerawaddy, Bagan has thousands of temples, thousands of ruins and a mysterious past. Today it is one of the wonders of Asia. Barry Broman has captured the timeless nature of Bagan in a series of 80 colour photographs taken during the last decade. Here we see the old restored to new; glimpses of the grandeur and delicacy of buildings returning to the earth; the mammoth temples beloved of Burma's kings; and the day to day life of farmers and artists, much as it has been during the preceding one thousand years.
