Rohingya: Refugees Crisis in Colour is a photography exhibition about ongoing genocide against Myanmar's Muslim minority ethnic group. The Rohingya are a stateless minority living in Myanmar (formerly Burma). Since August 2017, the Rohingya have also been subject to a brutal genocide, with over half a million being forced to flee into neighbouring Bangladesh. In 2016 Ali MC visited Rohingya refugee and internally displaced people's camps in both Myanmar and Bangladesh. His aim was to meet with, and photograph, Rohingya people, and document their living conditions. Unlike the photojournalism of poverty and angst, Ali MC also wanted to portray Rohingya as a people with pride and determination. Rohingya: Refugee Crisis in Colour features Ali MC's stunning medium format colour photography, that captures both the adversity and the resilience of the Rohingya people.
