Gallery artist, Tessa Bunney, is exhibiting her most recent series of photographs at Monument Books (Laos, Vietnam). The exhibit will be launched tomorrow evening, with an opening speech by the British Ambassador to Laos, and continues through to September 30th.

Since November 2012, Bunney has been photographing in Xieng Khouang—one of the most contaminated provinces of Vietnam—of unexploded bomb sub-munitions (UXO). She has documented the work of UCT6, an all-female team working for the Mines Advisory Group (MAG), who defuse the UXO's.
