A photo display about how democratic leader Aung San Suu kyi struggled to fight for democracy and as a proof she was seated in a position in the parliament is being shown in her hometown Yangon which just shows that the country is moving towards a new phase for democracy giving an end to military rule.
An ardent follower of Suu Kyi participated in the vernissage last Thursday with its theme “The Burmese Way to Democracy,” which portrayed the great effort of fighting for democracy by Aung San Suu Kyi now is achieving the fruit of its labour, according to news report from Associated Press.
With all the photo journalists taking photos of her while she’s enjoying the exhibits, she took the opportunity to express her gratefulness to those who supported her throughout her determination of fighting what is right.
She appreciated very well her photos for she’s engrossed in colourful umbrellas. What she likes most about the photo exhibit was when she posed with her constituents in Kawhmu township wearing a blue traditional Burmese outfit, with her red party flag in the background, AP reported.
With well-known Burmese photographers, they have included 25 poster-sized images of Aung San Suu Kyi like Pyay Kyaw Myint, Min Zayar, and Aung Pyae. A number of her images were already circulated and distributed in various international publications at some stage of the electoral campaign and also included in the International Herald Tribune, Paris Match magazine, and Le Monde newspaper, the report said.
This show is part of the current “Yangon Photo Festival” which was prearranged by the French Institute. It will also be shown in France for the Festival of Photography from July 2 to Sept.23 in Arles. Being a special and respected person as she is, Christophe Loviny, the festival’s artistic director disclosed that her photos and images reflects the kind of person she is with all her followers enticed with her presence and dearly loved her.
