A few weeks ago the Serindia Gallery in Bangkok, opened the photographic exhibition “ABHAYA Burma’s Fearlessness” by documentary photographer James Mackay. James Mackay has worked extensively on issues about Burma for a very long time in a very close collaboration with exile Burmese organisations and underground networks both inside and outside Burma.

All issues are about the democracy movements, political dissidents, human rights watch and this long term project about political prisoners in Burma. This tremendously dedicated work, challenging and fearless, comes together at the exhibition with the launch of the book: ABHAYA: Burma’s Fearlessness published by River Books.

These portraits are powerful and engaging and I almost heard a “dialogue” between former prisoners and they who are still behind bars……

This exhibition has been extended to the 24th of December,  if you’re in Bangkok…… Don’t miss it!
