PHOTOGRAPHY BY TIM WEBSTER

 

Yangon Echoes looks behind the façades of heritage buildings to offer intimate views of life in the cosmopolitan city formerly known as Rangoon, Burma. A popular history of buildings, this unprecedented work of oral history charts social space and urban folklore, linking past to present via living memories.

This exhibition is based on Tim's book of the same name, of which a limited supply are available for purchase from MAGNET.
