‘Slow Train to Thazi’ is a limited edition photograph by the fine art travel photographer & journalist Ben Mckechnie. This photograph depicts a woman on a train high in the hills of Shan State, Myanmar (Burma), using her scarf to shade her eyes from the sun. It was taken in December 2014 during a more hope-filled time in Myanmar—elections had just been set for the following year, in which Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy would sweep to victory.

“Slow travel emphasises a connection to the land and people around you, and the Slow Train to Thazi is slow travel at its finest; departing from a town north of Inle Lake, it makes its way west through Shan State, through the hills around Kalaw, before descending to the plains of central Myanmar. A ticket for the 10-hour journey costs just over 1 euro—remarkable value considering the opportunities it affords to interact with people on and off the train. The train gently clackety-clacks through villages and across ageing viaducts, and a breeze from the window washes the aroma of freshly fried snacks from hill station markets into the carriage. It’s an unforgettable experience.” — Ben Mckechnie

Camera & lens: Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 24–105 mm f4 L lens
