Umbrellas for Sale
Stuart Hahn, MD

This photograph was taken in 2014 in an outdoor market in Burma. The lively patterns and vibrant colors on these umbrellas are distinctive traits of crafts from this region. Officially known as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, or simply Myanmar, Burma has a long, rich history, much of it tinged by political and religious conflict.

Dr Hahn retired from The Permanente Medical Group in 2010. He has been seriously exploring photography since 2000 and has an interest in both wildlife and landscape photography. For further information about his artwork, Dr Hahn can be contacted at:
