On The Wall: Yangon Studio Photography 1960-1980


Images by Lukas Birk

The Myanmar Photo Archive (MPA) is a collection of work by local photographers that has been amassed in the last four years and is still growing. This exhibition showed studio images taken between 1962 and 1985 in Yangon, many at Bellay Photo Studio in Chinatown. The studio, founded by Har Si Yone in 1969, has been family-run ever since and is still active today.
