    The Lady! Daw Aung Sang Suu Kyii

     
    Days after disimprisonment from Daw Aung Sang Suu Kyii in november 2010 I took these historical moments at the NLD office in Rangoon / Birma. You can see the first conference of her members in the rooms of Aung Sang Suu Kyii´s NLD office. In the background you see the original election poster from her father General Aung Sang. During an inhumane and unimaginable dictatorship under Than Shwe - "the mother" of the burmese people was kept into prison and house arrest for years. The umbrella " The lady" you can see on one of the pictures was never just an umbrella. At that time it was the most dangerous and political statement you could ever say. Days before you were killed for that. Now she can be president elect.
