What stories do private spaces tell about the lives of the people who used to live there or still do? This is one of the questions central to the work of German photographer Beatrice Minda. Her search for private interior spaces, bringing us closer to a world bygone and depicting history between now and then, has led her through large parts of Myanmar. Here she presents the outcome of a workshop held with Myanmar photographers in Yangon. Exploring “Spaces and Histories”, the participants delved into the spaces of the city, some focusing on personal memories, others telling the lives and histories revealed in these old buildings.
