Nowhere to be Home in New York City

The first of a succession of events that I’m involved in as 2011 draws to a close kicks off in New York on October 11th with the Asia Society, PEN America Center, Open Society Foundations, Voice of Witness and the Magnum Foundation presenting “Voices of Burma”, an evening of readings from the acclaimed book ‘Nowhere to be Home: Narratives from Survivors of Burma’s Military Regime’ by Maggie Lemerre and Zoe West.

Having now become an OSI Moving Walls photographer I find myself and my work in highly esteemed company along side Magnum photographers Chien Chi Chang and the legendary Lu Nan whose work inside Burma’s prisons is remarkable. I hope to be there next week to enjoy the evening but the clock is very quickly ticking on finishing the book and it’s hours to go before it gets sent to the printers… more about that later…
