My Universeis a visual diary by the Myanmar artist BayBay. BayBay has had a rough time in recent years and has spent several periods of time in hospital recovering from severe alcoholism. My Universewas created on her hospital bed – imagining her Universe. “Every moment is difficult. It’s not easy for me to think. It’s not easy for me to sleep, to talk…. It’s not even easy for me to drink…. I don’t enjoy life. It’s too difficult to enjoy life.”

Her words and life experience stand in stark contrast to her wonderful naïve imagery, describing the world as she imagines it.

The book was produced by the Myanmar Photo Archive in Yangon.
