Monica Denevan: Songs of the River: Portraits of Burma and China

Monica Denevan: Songs of the River: Portraits of Burma and China at Scott Nichols Gallery in San Francisco, CA. "...Portraits from Burma and China by Monica Denevan features photographs from two very different countries in Asia. Ms. Denevan has been photographing in Burma for more than ten years. Her intimate portraits, which incorporate the surrounding landscapes, are of her Burmese friends and their families who live and work on the Irrawaddy River. Monica noted in her artist statement that she "seeks out remote places that have been relatively untouched by development in order to photograph those whose culture and traditional way of life reflect a deep authenticity or bond with the past." In the spring of 2007 she traveled to southwest China photographing the lush patterns and details she found in the countryside. Ms. Denevan's work is quiet and meditative, languid and sensual."
