PHOTOGRAPHY AS THERAPY

By Bay Bay and Wonder | Curated by MayCo Naing

With the advent of smartphones, the practice of photography has become universal; it is an essential part of the new language used on social media. In some cases, it can also be a very effective form of personal therapy.

In our first exhibition, Bay Bay, a 27-year-old Myanmar artist, deals with her alcoholism through self-analytical photo-montages and drawings. Creating acts like a rope to keep her afloat and help counter her anxieties.

The second exhibition is by Wonder, a Sichuanese artist who makes self-portraits with her body in order to deal with the trauma of an accident that left scars on her face.
