Minzayar is a Burmese photojournalist and documentary photographer based in his native town city of Yangon. He studied medicine at Yangon University of Medicine until 2011 when he decided to drop the medical career and pursue his personal interest in visually documenting the transition of his country. His first international breakthrough came in 2012 when his image of Aung San Suu Kyi appeared on the front page of the International Herald Tribune on the day after the country's historic by-elections that saw her elected to parliament.
