“The author spent over a year wandering around the vintage architectural marvels of Yangon, Myanmar, documenting the insides of the city’s grand old Colonial buildings, many of which were being demolished by the new wave of “investors” that had descended upon the city. In her introduction to this book, Rush notes that she “wasn’t interested in the architecture so much as the lives that took place inside it.” Indeed, rather than showing only photos of these crumbling architectural marvels, Rush takes you inside the buildings, and inside the lives of the inhabitants, via stunning photographs and revealing essays. Additional essays included in this book were written by noted author Emma Larkin (Secret Histories: Finding George Orwell in a Burmese Teashop) and Thant Thaw Kaung.”
