On Wednesday, December 8th, MCC will host a lecture by international, award-winning photojournalist/documentary photographer Min Ma Naing. This talk will complement a two-week exhibition of Min Ma Naing’s photographs of the 2021 anti-coup movement in Myanmar at the Brighton Campus. Please see below for details.

The Artist

Min Ma Naing is a personal documentary photographer from Myanmar who left Yangon, the country’s largest city, shortly after the military coup in 2021.  A visiting scholar with Cornell’s Southeast Asia Program, Min Ma Naing began her career as a press photographer before realizing that she wanted to focus on stories surrounding love and hatred. She has adopted the temporary pseudonym “Min Ma Naing” because of Myanmar’s precarious political situation. It means “The King Cannot Beat You.”
