2013 is the eighth year that the MY STORY photo project has exhibited work from its photo workshops at Borderline Gallery. We are excited to welcome work from Nat and Susan Tileston’s students for another year.
This year, workshops were held with Puzzlebox Art Studio & Kick-Start Art staff from Mae Sot; community workers in Pyin Oo Lwin, Burma; women from the Pa-O Women’s Union in Mae Hong Son; and Tibetan refugees at a transit school in McLeodganj, India. You will be astounded by the imagination these students showed. Jack Kerouac, a famous American writer from the 1950s, once told photographer Robert Frank, ‘You got eyes!’. We can say the same for this year’s photographers: ‘They got eyes!’
Please join us for the opening of MY STORY Photo Project 8 on Thursday, April 4th, 6 – 9 pm. We will have delicious refreshments from Borderline’s Tea Garden as usual. The young artists from Mae Sot will be at the exhibition early if you’d like to chat with them.
Prints are for sale, with half the proceeds going to the photographer and half going to the project for the purchase of new cameras.
MY STORY photo project would like to thank the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives for its support of the workshops with Kick-Start Art and the Pa-O Women’s Union. And of course a great big THANKS to the 36 photographers!
