The Wonders and Mysteries of Myanmar

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Blue Hill Public Library
5 Parker Point Rd, Blue Hill, ME, 04614

International wildlife and travel photographer Gary Harmatz will present an illustrated talk on his experiences in Myanmar, at the Blue Hill Public Library on Thursday, August 16th at 7:00 PM. Once hidden from the outside world, the former Burma is “quite unlike any land you know about,” as Rudyard Kipling famously wrote. Over a century later, Myanmar retains the power to surprise and delight. It’s a new era for this extraordinary and complex land, where the traditional ways of Asia endure.

From the golden pagodas, to the rich landscape and the welcoming Burmese people…travel with Gary from Yangon (Rangoon), Mandalay, the floating villages of Inle Lake to Bagan, and the valley of 4,000 Buddhist temples to the turquoise waters and white sand beaches of the Bay of Bengal.

Gary Harmatz has been a wildlife, nature, travel, and underwater photographer for almost 30 years. His nature and travel photography has taken him throughout Europe, Japan, Southeast Asia, the Bahamas, North and South America, Antarctica and Africa. He specializes in unique images from the grand scenic and exotic marketplaces to the fall foliage of New England.

Gary’s sense of color, light, composition and his ability to tell a story with his photography makes him a unique photographer and lecturer. He makes his home both on Clearwater Beach, Florida and on the coast of Maine. This program is sponsored by the library and everyone is welcome. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
