The Enigmatic Breakfast: Photographic Series by Kyaw Htoo Bala
I’m not one to wake up late. However, it takes some time for me to get out of bed in the mornings.
Sometimes I examine myself up close, sometimes from afar. On some occasions, I would have a look at my own guts. A gasp slips through my mouth as I stare at my own mind. Fear and memories, libido and pain, some embarrassing moments of the human existence, strength and drive, lucidity and slime, seeing the world through the eyes of a cockroach as it crawls across the bathroom tiles. Normally, I don’t eat breakfast. But this enigmatic breakfast, I have it in my bed.
