HK_SkateboardersOfYangon_OnlineFlyer_03-620x482Last week, I was in Yangon, Myanmar for an exhibition of my portraits of Yangon’s Skateboarders, some of which were featured in issue 11 of Grey. The exhibition was funded by The British Council in Myanmar and held at the famous Pansodan Gallery’s new space in downtown Yangon. Although I spent most of my time in Myanmar in bed with the flu, I managed to transport the prints from London safely, hang the show and make brief appearances at both opening nights. I’d like to thank The British Council, Pansodan Gallery, James Holman, Toby Mills, Ali Drummond, Sarah Graley and most of all the Skateboarders of Yangon.
