The Golden Leaf

 

Sombra Projects presents The Golden Leaf, an exhibition exploring contemporary & historical issues in Myanmar.

Shown at the Objectifs Centre for Photography and Film October to November 2014.

From cultural exoticism to political and social events that send ripples around the world, Myanmar evokes both wonder and concern. Through documentary photography and academic research, The Golden Leaf looks at alternative and lesser-heard stories about the country.
