Getting to Burma's First Lady

Renowned portrait photographer Platon reveals how he got to photograph Burma's First Lady, dissident Aung San Suu Kyi, whilst she is under house arrest. Burma is ruled by a military Junta and stands at number 176 out of 180 in the World Corruption Perceptions Index. Platon's tale is of subtefuge, cunning and good old fashioned brass neck which resulted in him taking this stunning portrait on the cover of Time magazine. Platon tells his story in an enlightening video on the Time Video site and is well worth a visit.
