James Henry Green was a British army officer and amateur photographer whose appointment took him to the most remote hill regions of Burma between the two world wars. His fascination with the peoples living in these areas and the exploration of their ethnic differences was the motivating force behind his photographic collection of more than 1600 images. It fuelled what was to become a lifelong pursuit of anthropology.
This unique documentary work is a unique visual catalogue of early 20th century Burma and its exceptional ethnic diversity. The Burma collections of James Henry Green are placed with The Royal Pavilion, Libraries and Museums, Brighton, UK.
