Artists: Ali MC

The ongoing genocide of Rohingya people in Western Myanmar (formerly Burma) remains almost ignored by world media. Displaced from their homes, attacked by the military, interned in refugee camps and driven across the border into neighbouring Bangladesh, the Rohingya have become known as one of the world’s most persecuted people.

In 2016, Ali MC visited Rohingya refugee and internally displaced peoples’ camps in both Myanmar and Bangladesh. Ali MC wanted to portray Rohingya as a people with pride and determination, despite their adverse living conditions. The portraits included in Rohingya: Refugee Crisis in Colour accomplish just that – strength and resilience captured
on camera.

A photo book is also available, with proceeds going towards Rohingya refugee relief. Contact
