“Solitary Walk”- First Photo Book Set to be Published.

Htet T San Solitary Walk Photo Book

I have been making sure to announce this. This year I will be working towards a photo book which I named as “Solitary Walk”, focusing on my random walks around the beaches of New York City. This will be the first ever photo book of my photography career and hopefully, by the end of the year, I will have enough pictures to complete this.

Publishing New Photography Project “The Frail Second”

I have been spending my time a lot on beaches all summer long for this project and thinks it reaches to a point I am comfortable enough to publish.

So, here is my newest personal project “The Frail Second”, the first personal project I have reached that far since my “Emotion/Untold Stories” in 2010.

I remembered the day that this concept struck my mind. I couldn’t sleep.

I think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody’s face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways.

—Duane Michals


Life- in order to understand something, you have to go through the whole process by yourself to reach that point (no matter how long it takes) coz without your own experience, the resolution feels “Empty”.

Summer’s Calling

Summer day hiking _Htet T San

Like John Lubbock said, to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky is how I occasionally want to waste my time. I miss fresh air, greenness, coziness and the smell of the wilderness when I lie my back on the ground…it feels like homecoming..Return to the root of the root
of my own soul…I have to go hiking again.


“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”

― Rumi

–  I discovered the great Persian poet Rumi today.

To the End

To the End_ Htet T San ( from upcoming Solitary Walk Photobook)

It takes exactly one lifetime for a human to learn just how to die. And, the only bearable way to go through life is to surround ourselves with “healing” friendship and love, those who appreciate us as who we really are, inside-out and giving them the same thing in return.

After all, we are all trapped in this hamster ball called human life. It’s a vicious cycle..but We will hold our hands and together, we will face the end.
