Geoffrey Hiller: Daybreak in Myanmar
March 12 - May 29, 2016
FORT WAYME MUSEUM OF ART
This exhibit by noted photographer Geoffrey Hiller captures the essence of the people of Burma that have been living under a military dictatorship that has isolated the country for the past 60 years. Now that the government is making the transition to democracy, the veil is slowly lifting on this fascinating land and its people.
Hiller has been documenting the people of Burma since 1987 and has returned several times since the historic opening in 2011 to capture evidence of change, not only images of rallies for Aung San Suu Kyi, but the anticipation, hope and concerns of a nation forgotten by the world. Following his award-winning web documentary from 2000, Burma: Grace Under Pressure, Hiller published 170 color photographs which comprise the Daybreak in Myanmar series.
This exhibit includes bilingual labels in English and Burmese.
April 7: Geoffrey Hiller in-person visit FWMuseum of Art
Supported with a grant by the Journal Gazette Foundation
12:15pm - Enjoy a Curator's Tour with special guest Geoffrey Hiller as he leads a guided tour through his exhibit Daybreak in Myanmar. Free with gallery admission.
