    Yancho Sabev

Every buddhist burmese boy between the age of 7 and 13 is expected to enter the monastery as a novice monk for a period of a few weeks to several months. He has a choice to return to life outside the monastery at any time, or he can stay on as a monk, if he so chooses.

Yancho Sabev is a multiple award-winning photographer, visual opportunist, adventurer and philosopher based in Leuven, Belgium. Primarily Yancho focuses his photography on street, adventure, landscapes, lifestyle and fine art. His inspiration is fueled by discovering new places and immersing himself in unfamiliar cultures. Traveling has become a huge part of Yancho’s life and by capturing his adventures he hopes to inspire others to get outside "the comfort zone" and create their own adventures and amazing memories.
