The Past is the Present

In collaboration with Goethe Institut Myanmar and as part of the My Home My Yangon Art and Heritage Festival an exhibition which explores personal histories through photography.

The Past is the Present

The culmination of an exploratory workshop designed and led by celebrated Indian photographer Pablo Bartholomew delving into personal histories of Myanmar. Working with photo collections provided by the participants themselves the workshop began a process of researching, recording and re-imagining personal histories.

The people and places shown in family albums, holiday snaps and private photo collections each tell different, interwoven histories of Myanmar - parallel narratives that show how a country, its people and its places exist beyond the recorded and broadcasted official history.
