UNEARTH, a Myanmar Deitta photo exhibition, took place in Bohtataung Township, Yangon, on 24 November, attracting local and foreign photo enthusiasts.
Unearth features photos taken in 2015 by photographers from Myanmar, the United States, the UK and Thailand. The photos tell stories of people engaged in extractive industries by scavenging raw gem stones from discarded soil in Kachin State, highlighting the challenges faced by marginalised people across the country.
The photo exhibition will remain on display until 19 December. —Thant Zin Win
