Yangon—Yangon Gallery will host a photo exhibition entitled “Yangon Circle Photography Project,” which will document the comings and goings at train stations.
The exhibition will run from 5 to 9 September and will feature 50 colour and black-and-white works by a 17-member group led by photographer Kyaw Kyaw Winn.
According to exhibition coordinator Lynn Whut Hmone, the group also includes a Japanese photographer called Mr Takashi Koike. He will share his experiences of railway photography during workshops and a lecture scheduled to be held from 2pm to 4pm everyday during the exhibition period, Kyaw Kyaw Winn said.
He added, “The participating photographers took pictures of commuters, trains and the surrounding environment by riding the circle line throughout the project. The aim is to document the old Yangon railway as it will soon be replaced with modern facilities.”
Kyaw Kyaw Winn said: “All the money raised from the event will be donated to victims of the floods, as well as the rehabilitation of school buildings which were destroyed.”
Donors can make contributions by buying the artworks displayed at the gallery for US$200 per photograph. Donors will receive a photo book with 150 pages provided by the exhibitor.
The Yangon Gallery is located within the compound of People’s Park, near the Planetarium Museum on Ahlone Road. It plans to host a wide range of arts events during its second Monsoon Art Festival, which will run from 28 August to 28 October.—GNLM
