Brave New Burma

Nic Dunlop

The result of 20 years of research, writing and photographing, Nic Dunlop's new book gives a unique insight into a country emerging from decades of dictatorship into an as yet uncertain future.~~Nic Dunlop spent 20 years photographing Burma under military rule. His new book - Brave New Burma - is an intimate portrait in words and pictures of a country finally emerging from decades of dictatorship, isolation and fear.~From the frontlines of the civil war to deceptively tranquil cities, from the home of democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi to the lives of ordinary people struggling to survive, Brave New Burma is both an historic collection of rare images and a powerful exposeé of Burma’s crisis.~

Change has come to Burma for the first time in decades. But change brings dangers, including the erasing of history and the invention of a new Burma in appearance alone. Brave New Burma is a haunting record of a country now struggling to recreate itself.~~Nic Dunlop's work has been published worldwide. In 1999, he received an award from the John Hopkins University for Excellence in International Journalism for his discovery and exposure of Pol Pot’s chief executioner Comrade Duch, a story told in his book The Lost Executioner. He also co-directed Burma Soldier, an HBO film which was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the United Nations Association Film Festival and nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Writing.
