Antique cameras collection, including 100-year-old cameras, will be exhibited in Mandalay City Hall on 26th Street in Mandalay from 23 to 25 April, according to organizers.
Old photographs and roughly 200 antique cameras, including cameras produced since 1908 and a camera of Hanthawaddy U Win Tin, the late prominent journalist and politician, will be showcased during the three-day event.
Kyaw Thet Min, a private collector, said he had collected old-fashioned cameras since 2004 with the aim of showcasing them in a small museum. The key objective of holding this kind of exhibition was to display the antique cameras for public observation in a single place.
The first antique cameras exhibition was held in Yangon in October, last year, when the organiser displayed 150 antique cameras, including cameras used circa 1900. The event organizer starts collecting the cameras 15 to 16 years ago. Now, he has over 500 cameras of over 40 different types.—Myanmar Digital News
