Photographer Andrew Rowat will present Collision Yangon – his project on the forces coming together in the crucible that is Yangon, Myanmar.
“Opposing forces of so-called modernity and development pressing up against traditional ways of life; new buildings displacing old; religious tension between Buddhists and others (mainly Muslims); political uncertainty as dictatorship transitions to a form of hybrid democracy; and the energy of the place — roiling currents of optimism and unbridled hope for a future yet unwritten.”
