To reach the clandestine training camp where he photographed "The Jesus-Kissed, War-Fringed, Love-Swirling Rangers," South Africa-based lensman Jonathan Torgovnik was smuggled across the Burmese border in a pirogue. Then he was guided at night through a jungle laced with land mines. At the camp, Torgovnik met a former U.S. Special Forces soldier turned minister who is teaching freedom fighters to survive the conflict in Myanmar. "It's a bizarre story," says Torgovnik, who also shoots for The New Yorker and Wired. "His wife and three kids are there with him, living like Robinson Crusoe at the edge of a war zone."
