May 7, 2015  Borderline Gallery, Mae Sot, Thailand

We had a big crowd for the 10th annual MSppa photo exhibition;  many former students and workshop leaders, as well as most of our current students were able to attend.  What excitement as they saw their work professionally matted and framed on the gallery walls!

Social Action for Women, Health Care House, Mae Sot, Thailand.  December, 2014
