TIME magazine’s new cover story looks at the life of Nobel Prize-winner Aung Sang Suu Kyi since Burma’s military regime released her from house arrest in November. TIME.com has a video interview with photographer Platon, who describes the lengths he and reporter Hannah Beech had to go to in order to meet with their subject inside Burma, where most foreign journalists have been banned.  His tale involves disguises, a car chase, and a meeting with a woman who is revered as a heroine both inside her country and around the world.

Also on TIME.com you can see some of Platon’s color and black-and-white portraits of Suu Kyi.
