Yangon a City to Rescue | new publication



Yangon a City to Rescue” - a coffee table photography book with 60 pages of images of Yangon, Myanmar by Jacques Maudy and Jimi Casaccia has been published, documenting the stunning and intact architectural jewels that help tell the story of Burma's colonial past.

Jacques and Jimi have documented Yangon’s colonial buildings in a comprehensive suite of awe-inspiring images that have ever been produced of Yangon’s colonial buildings. Their photographs allow the majesty of these buildings to speak for themselves, and “are so vital that you’ll literally gasp at the majestic height buildings like the High Court,” claims the Yangon Heritage Trust (YHT). Last year YHT put out a call out for help to save Yangon’s colonial buildings, and documentary photographers Jacques Maudy (France/Australia) and Jimi Casaccia (Italy) felt compelled to answer.

60 pages, 20 x 30 cm, hard cover. Unique set of photos of Yangon architecture, street scapes and peoples portrait. Exclusive photographs of the Secretariat, the Pegu Club and the Shwe Dagon Pagoda…
