Arles 2012 - Night of the Year: Yangon Festival
For its eighth edition, the Night of the Year imbues the streets of Arles with a festive atmosphere to accompany a grand photographic tour where different artists from newspapers, magazines, and photographic agencies and groups display their year’s work on fourteen screens.
We present a selection of five videos: Vogue magazine, Polka, Liberation, the House of Europe in Georgia and Yangon Photo Festival.
Created in 2009 by the Institut Français de Birmanie and artistic director Christophe Loviny, the Yangon Photo Festival is a project under the patronage of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.
In January 2012, the 4th YPF's international exhibits and conferences were dedicated to environmental issues.
The YPF project is also an opportunity to train all year long the new generation of Myanmar photographers.
