History

Created in 2008, the original objective of our association was to build the capacity of Myanmar youth to document the most pressing social justice and environmental problems. In twelve years, PhotoDoc has trained to visual story-telling over a thousand young men and women from all around he country.

Their powerful short documentaries contextualize and humanize important issues. PhotoDoc disseminates them to a mass audience via our popular e-magazine on Facebook, Myanmar Stories, and large advocacy events such as the Yangon Photo Festival. For its 12th edition, 300 000 visitors are expected to 200 exhibitions and screenings in Maha Bandoola Park, the Railway Station, Dala Ferries, Junction City, Myanmar Deitta, the Rosewood Hotel, the French Institute and Goethe Institut.
