Law Eh Soe, a refugee and photojournalist from Burma, would like to have an exhibit of his photography at CEPA Gallery.

Law Eh Soe is a refugee from Burma who came to Buffalo under the US government resettlement program about three years ago. The International Institute, where he now works as an interpreter, was the agency that brought him to Buffalo. In Burma, Law was a photojournalist and his photos were in Time Magazine and Newsweek and on CNN, as he covered events that only those inside Burma could see.

After photographing the violent uprising in 2007 in which a Japanese photojournalist was killed, Law left Burma for his own safety.

Law's story is documented in a film called "Click in Fear" that won Best Documentary at the first ever Art of Freedom Film Festival in Rangoon in January 2012.

Law is an artist who is passionate about his country and people and wants to show us the beauty of every day life in Burma. CEPA Gallery and the International Institute of Buffalo have secured almost half of the $5,000 we need in order to have an exhibit of Law’s photographs. With your help, the exhibit will open on May 11th at CEPA Gallery with a screening of Click in Fear and a reception to follow.
