YPF, supported by the French Institute will start this year on February 13th and will organize its Awards Night on the 21st, a Saturday. Just as in the previous years, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, head of the jury delivering the awards to the best photographers chosen from the participants of the workshops, will be present at the ceremonial event organized at the French Institute.
During the Festival`s week, several exhibitions will open across town: Pansodan Scene will host the exhibition of a French artist-duo, the Bachelot-Caron (www.bachelotcaron.fr). Louis & Marjolaine Bachelot-Caron form a duo of contemporary artists specialized originally in the illustration of crime scenes for various magazines including The New Yorker, Libération, Détective & Le Monde 2. Since 2005, their work has been presented in various galleries across Europe. Exceptionally, the two artists will invite Myanmar participants to join in the production of an artwork.
The artists will open their show on Wednesday 18 February at 6.30 p.m., preceded first by a talk on the market of contemporary photography and a film on the duo. The Bachelot-Caron have also decided to organize a workshop on the weekend of February 14-15th.
