YPF 2015 : Dirk has a secret love, Sandra Hoyn’s Jenny’s Soul, Myanmar [Burma], written by Jean Loh

Sandra Hoyn who studied photography at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg has been working as a freelance photo-journalist on social environment and human rights issues for NGO’s and magazines in various countries in Europe, Africa and Asia,. It was from Northern Sumatra Indonesia that she brought back the story of the last Orangutans that won her third prize category Nature singles at World Press Photo 2015.

At Yangon Photo Festival she presents an unusual love story: “Jenny’s Soul” which  tells the relationship between a man (Dirk) and his silicone doll (Jenny). With the same sensitive touch as she had  in the Orangutan Conservation Center approaching a miserable male Orangutan found in a palm oil plantation with air gun metal pellets embedded in his body, Sandra Hoyn becomes an anthropologist exploring a new kind of human love, in the bedroom of a lonely lost soul  in an anonymous German city who has been living in secret for years with a silicone doll.
