San Francisco-based photographer Vance Jacobs spent ten days in Myanmar meeting with some of the top CEOs in the world and their families. He traveled around photographing local places and people and was in awe of the locations untouched by tourism. He comments, "With the transition from a military dictatorship to a civilian government, there is a dynamic energy in the country because of all the changes happening in the country – they just got internet six months ago and access to the most popular sites three months ago."

Jacobs also had the opportunity to meet with Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. Kyi is a Burmese opposition politician who was sentenced to house arrest for 15 years up until a year ago for her political activism. He says, "She spoke with 120 people from all over the world and was able to find a connection with each one of them."
