Aung San Suu Kyi and her son, Kim (18th October 1995)
Robin Moyer made this photograph of Aung San Suu Kyi on the back porch of her house in Yangon, October 1995 at a time when she was under house arrest. The story behind this photograph is best explained in his own words:
" Suu's husband and their son, Kim, arrived during our shoot. She hadn't seen Kim for several years. Biggest smile I ever saw from her."
