My Globalization Generation

Thurain Aung

Twenty-year old Thurain Aung is the youngest participant in Framing the Transition. For his photo essay for the project, he decided to look at his generation and how it is adapting to all what is new that is coming to his country. “I’m curious to see how people my age are reacting to globalization,” he says. “My generation is thirsty for everything that is new and from abroad, but at the same time my country is a very conservative, traditional one.”

And what is Thurain Aung’s motivation for his photographs? “All this change around me is just super exciting,” he explains. A remark not surprising coming from Thurain Aung, who likes to take his photographs on burst mode, shooting hundreds of images at a time, editing later. He concludes:

The most important thing I see in the portraits I took is not about the change, whether good or bad, it is about sharing cultures from different worlds in all respects. It is about listening to the other and understanding his or her own identity. It is about making this world smaller and humankind larger.
