An Exploration of Film Photography & Human Rights
To coincide with his latest medium-format exhibition, Nong Shain Maw: Stone Breakers of the East Khasi Highland, Ali MC will be presenting on his photo documentary work which focuses on human rights issues around the world. From Rohingya refugee camps and East Timorese rubbish dumps, to the struggles of Indigenous communities in Australia, India and Canada, Ali MC will draw on both his experience in photography - for which he shoots only on film - and expertise in human rights to present an insightful view into documenting marginalised communities.
Ali MC is a writer and photographer working internationally on human rights issues. As well as being a published author, he holds a Masters in Human Rights Law. Ali MC specialises in film photography, and most recently held an exhibition of medium format films on the Rohingya crisis.
Nong Shain Maw: Stone Breakers of the East Khasi Highland is a medium format photography exhibition by Ali MC.
The exhibition documents the life of the Nong Shain Maw as ‘the people who break the rock.’
OPENING: Saturday 18 May, 4pm – 5.30pm EXHIBITION: 18 May – 8 June
