Myanmar-Bangladesh Woman Photographers Exchange
Six female Pathshala Alumni were in Yangon to work on collaborative projects with six Myanmar women photographers, as the first part of the exchange programme titled ‘Bridging the Naf’ from 19th to 26th January 2019. The group showed their collaborative works produced during their stay, in a variety of presentations; photo prints, folded books and sideshow projection.
Myanmar Deitta and Thuma Collective organized a two-way exchange program between women photographer collectives in Yangon and Dhaka, in collaboration with Kaali Collective and Pathshala South Asian Media Institute in Bangladesh. Both collectives have been formed within the past year with the intention of writing their own histories collectively.
The six female Pathshala Alumni participants were: Marium Rupa, Farzana Hossen, Farhana Setu Aungmakhai Chak, Gayatree Arun, Rezowana Chowdhury Xenia
