Author, editor, translator and media development specialist Letyar Tun was recently in Denmark to promote an exhibition of his photographs …

Hosted by the Dignity – Danish Institute for Torture and funded by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Beyond the Prison Gate, exposes the transition former prisoners undergo as they struggle to adjust to a new life outside the walls.

A former political prisoner himself  (18 years, with 14 years on death row), Letyar’s showcased photographs form part of his ‘Framing the Transition’ project which has already exhibited at several locations in Myanmar and focus on the families of those political prisoners who died in detention.
