REPRODUCED – Rethinking P.A. Klier and D.A. Ahuja
by Lukas Birk & Carmín Berchiolly
Philipp Adolphe Klier and D.A. Ahuja were two of the most important image makers during Myanmar’s early colonial times. Their reproductions have been used and interpreted throughout the decades in many different forms, yet we still know very little about their lives. While much of their original work survives today in the form of reproductions, they still form an integral part of Myanmar’s visual heritage. We must ask ourselves, what do these images really tell us about life in Myanmar 100 years ago?
