Through his latest series, Romain Veillon takes us to a small village called In dein, in Burma. Founded around the third century by monks who wanted to spread Buddhism in the country, it now offers the opportunity to see hundreds of small temples. Today, nature has reclaimed its rights and gives the impression of swallowing up the ruins of these abandoned places. In spite of this, it is nevertheless possible to find magnificent ornaments and statues of Buddhas, scattered all over the site.
« Today, the population is slowly starting to renovate these temples; and you can now discover ruined stupas surrounded by brand new pagodas », explains Romain, who spent a little more than two weeks there, alone. The photographer « has always been fascinated by this country », and here, he has succeeded in linking his desire to discover a culture and to photograph abandoned places in these regions.
