GNA Monthly Event feat. Brennan O'Connor | Photographs from Myanmar’s borderlands

Join us for a talk with photographer Brennan O'Connor, who will share images from his long-term photographic project in Myanmar's borderlands. He will also recount his experiences from being on the ground on-and-off in Myanmar for the past 13 years, including his latest trips to Myanmar's Karenni State in 2023. There, he documented the challenges faced by civilians enduring constant airstrikes launched by the military, all while receiving minimal assistance from international agencies.

Brennan O'Connor is a Canadian photographer. After a decade of freelancing for leading media outlets in his country, he devoted himself full-time to pursuing under-reported stories about Myanmar's diverse ethnic minorities in the country's borderlands near Thailand, China, India, and Bangladesh in 2010. During this period, he documented the struggles of these communities resisting Bamar (Burmese) rule both before and during the failed reform period—when nothing really changed—up until the aftermath of the 2021 military coup. His work has been published in various international media outlets and has garnered numerous accolades, including the prestigious Lucas Dolega Prize in France.

High unemployment and low wages, exacerbated by the long-running civil war, have driven many Myanmar nationals to seek work in nearby Thailand.
