June 18, 2009 – Ibis is co-sponsoring the opening reception for the “Invisible Lives” photo show which will take place on June 18, 2009 from 6-8pm at powerHouse Books (37 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201). “Invisible Lives” is a book and photo show project presenting images to raise awareness of the ongoing civil war in eastern Burma which has driven more than two million people into Thailand and neighboring countries. The images of “Invisible Lives” bring the worlds of these refugees and illegal migrants into the open. Proceeds from the “Invisible Lives” event and book sales will fund reproductive health education for adolescents living along the Thai/Burma border.
