Join us for this fun and enlightening conversation.
Photographer Ore Huiying presents her photo project on the Burmese Women's Football Team
Ore Huiying is a prize-winning documentary photographer from Singapore. Her practice revolves around storytelling. Working mostly on personal projects and editorial assignments, Ore’s works have been published in Le Monde newspaper, Courrier International, British Journal of Photography, Ojo de Pez magazine and BBC, amongst others. Ore was named one of the 10 Platform Emerging Photographers in Singapore 2010 and was selected to participate in the 1st Asian Women Photographers’ Showcase in Angkor Photo Festival. Last year, she was nominated for the Sagamihara Photo City’s Asia Prize (Japan) and received a Select Award in the Kuala Lumpur International Photo Award.
About her project:
In the last two years, following the Myanmar’s transition to a new government, interest in football has revitalized after a steep fall in investment in the 80s and 90s. The Myanmar national women's football team is preparing for the 27th Southeast Asian Games, the first large-scale international event to be held in the country since the dramatic transformation of its leadership. The women of the national team are pursuing their dreams of becoming professional football players despite being discouraged, by words or the stick, by their traditional environment. Cronies and ministries support the young women, hoping that football will foster unity in a country divided over
religious, ethnic and governing issues.
