A monk studies beneath drying robes in Mandalay, Myanmar.

Young monks live in the novice dorm at Phaung Daw Oo, a school in Mandalay, Myanmar, separated from the other regular students both by location and customs. Novice monks--those who have not officially taken the vows to live fully as monks--give up many of the joys of being a teenager that other students take for granted. The dorm itself feels like another world at PDO, a story of sacrifice and discipline, in this land of overwhelming circumstance.
