Myanmar Impression - Photography Group Show

June 29th - July 12th, 2019

Myanmar is an ancient Buddhist country in Southeast Asia. It has beautiful scenery, friendly people, thousands of unique temples and pagodas, and rich culture, making Myanmar one of the favorite destinations for travel photographers.

Bagan, a small town in central Myanmar, is famous for its vast collection of Buddhist architecture and rich Buddhist culture. In the heyday of history, there were more than 10,000 large and small temples and pagodas. There are still more than 2,000 temples exist nowadays, it is the most densely populated city in the world. Burmese pagoda is mainly made of bricks and has a bell-shaped structure. Because of the gold mines and gems produced in Myanmar, believers are offering gold foil and gems to decorate the Buddha statues and temples. When the sun rises, the red sun shines on the golden temples and pagodas. The earth is covered with yellow and golden color, together with the hot air balloon flying slowly above the pagoda, forming a bright and fantastic landscape in Bagan.

Mandalay is the second largest city in Myanmar, meaning “the city of treasures”. It is the capital of Myanmar's last dynasty and is listed as a UN World Heritage Site. Over the past 20 years, with the influx of Chinese immigrants, Mandalay’s economic structure has been reshaped. The little monks on the streets, the flower-vendor girls who wear the tanaka powder, and the lively market show the prosperity of this new and old city.

Inle Lake is a 875-meter-high tranquil lake and surrounded by mountains. A row of houses, temples and markets on the banks of the lake were built. The one-footed boat-rolling and the special fishing method are unique views of Inle Lake.

【Myanmar Impression】 The joint exhibition is a mark on this rising ancient country by four photographers-- Jung-Te Hwang,  Amy Chiu, Yeh Wuu Chang, Mu Lung Lee.

The photographers visited Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake, Yangon and other Myanmar's most representative ancient cities and natural landscapes, and recorded the local culture with their cameras. Through the photographer's lens, it not only leads the viewer to the ancient mysterious side of Myanmar, but also has a closer understanding of the life of the Burmese people.

緬甸,是位於東南亞的佛教古國,民風純樸,風景優美,成千上萬座極具特色的寺廟佛塔,和豐富的 人文風情,讓緬甸成為旅行攝影者趨之若鶩的國家。

蒲甘,這座緬甸中部的小城,以擁有世所罕見的大量佛教建築與豐富的佛教文化而著名。歷史上全盛期曾有萬餘座大小寺塔,現存也有超過兩千座,可說是世上佛教建築最密集的城市。緬甸的佛塔多以磚砌成,呈吊鐘狀,由於緬甸產金礦與寶石,信徒以金箔寶石奉獻,裝飾佛塔和佛像,當旭日升起,紅色的太陽光映照在金色佛塔,大地一片黃澄澄的金色,再加上佛塔上緩緩飛行的熱氣球,構成蒲甘一幅明豔而奇幻的風景。

曼德勒是緬甸第二大城,意為「多寶之城」。它是緬甸最後一個王朝的都城,被列為聯合國世界文化遺產。過去20年來隨著中國移民大量湧入,重塑了曼德勒的經濟結構。街道上托缽魚貫而行的小僧侶、搽抹香木粉的賣花女孩、熱鬧的市集,展現出這座都城新舊並存的繁榮樣貌。

茵萊湖是一個海拔875公尺的湖泊,群山環繞, 清幽靜謐。湖畔建立了一排排水上房屋、寺廟和市集。以單腳划行的小舟,和特殊的捕魚方式,是茵萊湖獨特的景致。

【緬甸印象】聯展是四位攝影師­---黃榮德、趙華琚、許月伍、李木榮,對這個正在崛起中的古國所留下的一道印記。

攝影師們走訪蒲甘、曼德勒、茵萊湖、仰光等緬甸最具代表性的古城和自然景觀,用一幀幀照片記錄下當地的人文特色。透過攝影師的鏡頭,不僅帶領觀者窺探緬甸古老神秘的一面,也對緬甸人民的生活日常有更親近的認識。
