Moe Lay was also a photojournalist and political activist who had long opposed the military dictatorship with his non-bias political views while earning a living as a tattoo artist. Currently, he has left Myanmar to avoid the unjust orders of the military dictator. These photos were taken during the protests before he left Myanmar to let the international community know the truth about the situation in Myanmar after the military coup.

BEHIND THE FACADE

The exhibition shows how the projects photography team - children and youth aged 8-16 years - caught a glimpse of various and surprising moments: From the birds and horses at the local youth club “Terasserne” to up-close portrait photos that the children shot of each other in the forests around Utterslev Mose or the open areas between Tingbjerg and Høje Gladsaxe.

The pictures give the viewer a unique insight on the different types of people and their stories, backgrounds and cultures, which all have one thing in common - they are all from Tingbjerg. 

“I am so proud of the exhibition - very proud of our exhibition - the pictures are beautiful, and we’ve all spent a lot of time choosing and editing the pictures.” Samira, 10 y.o. (Tingbjerg 2020).

 

Samira is one of the children behind the photo exhibition “Behind The Facade - Stories From Tingbjerg”, and we too can definitely see why she and the other young artists are proud of the exhibition!

 

Turning Tables Denmark spent six weeks in Tingbjerg in their mobile container studio where they held creative workshops with over 50 local children and young people. Facilitating the workshops was a challenge due to the corona pandemic, but with the support from local collaborators and the openness and curiosity from the local residents, it ended up becoming a success. The openness from the local children and youth is what defines the exhibition, which you can experience here.

VOLAR LIBREMENTE - FLY FREE

 

This is exactly what the youth from Høje Gladsaxe are doing right now. They are following their hearts, and they are daring to dream. This has resulted in their joint clothing brand Águila (Spanish for “Eagle”), which they have started from scratch. 

 

As Shabaz, 19, tells us: “We want to tell our own story through Águila, tell our own ideas, visions and ambitions. We’re always told by others what we should do, which direction we should choose, and who our role models should be. Through Águila we get to tell everyone who we are and which directions we ourselves have chosen to follow.”

 

During the summer of 2020 Turning Tables established a photo-film project with 15-20 young people from Høje Gladsaxe. It turned into six weeks of film and photography workshops, where youth aged from 13-20 years produced films, photo series and photographic postcards.
