A Rangoon photography exhibition displaying pictures of this year’s education protests has been cut short.
The “Documenting Burma’s long march” event was a collective exhibition of the work of five photojournalists – J-Paing, Sai Zaw, Hein Htet, Tazar Hlaing and Lamin Tun – and showcased key events of the protests, from the outset of the march from Mandalay, through to the now infamous police crackdown on activists in Letpadan on 10 March, and the court appearances of those arrested.
The owner of the venue, Think Art Gallery in Nawaday Street in Rangoon’s Dagon Township, called on organisers to close the exhibition after two days. It had originally been scheduled for three days, from 25 to 27 April.
