Digital photographic and internet have made easy access to photography, we are so used to seeing them online these days that seeing a real photography print is simply a pure treat. These photos will not do justice to the beautiful Myanmar if they are only to be seen on your computer screen, if you still haven’t seen them in person, please come tomorrow(6th Feb), it’s the last day.
To those who have missed the Meet The Artists Sharing Sessions at the Myanmar’s Dream photo exhibition over the past weekend, here is your last chance. Alan Lim is considering to hold another
session this coming Thursday(5th Feb) at 7.00pm if we could gather a minimum of 15 people. Hear the stories behind each photo and find out how they were brought to life, and pick his brain in travel photography.
