Flares are set off during an underground music show at Kandawgyi Lake, Yangon, 2010.
Documentary photographer and writer Matt Grace arrived in Asia in 2006 to work with Burmese communities in northern Thailand.
He eventually returned to London where he studied Photojournalism at the London College of Communication and spent two years as a press photographer before moving to Yangon in 2010.
In Yangon, he worked extensively with NGOs propping up Myanmar’s ailing public health system while also pursuing personal photographic projects on youth culture in the city.
At the start of 2012, Matt went back to northern Thailand to help set up a documentary photography and filmmaking center in Chiang Mai. He has recently returned to Yangon and is planning to implement a similar project in Myanmar.
