In Search of Dignity, by Günter Pfannmüller and Wilhelm Klein
Opening on 8 March
Exhibition from 8 to 19 March
In 1980, Photographer Gunter Pfannmüller and writer Wilhelm Klein were the first photojournalists allowed into Burma. They produced the ‘Burma Insight Guide’, of which over a million copies were printed in 12 languages. Then, they traveled around the country with a portable photography studio of their own invention. What makes their photographs so special is the aura of a dignity that connects the extraordinary ethnic diversity of Myanmar’s peoples. This perspective on what these peoples are sharing documents a fascinating string of a common propriety, a bond that can heal all wounds and unite a nation.
