There is always a first time to everything … and, this is my first time joining a photo exhibition.
It is an honor to be selected as one of Yaman Ibrahim & his Mutual Friends #Kolektif 1 photo contributor. Yaman Ibrahim is a very talented and famous photographer here in Malaysia. A simple, humble and down-to-earth artist that I find easy to work with. 28 photographers (from Malaysia and Brunei) exhibited 78 pieces of travel photograph around the world during the exhibition period. Do come and have a look at our photos on display at MaTIC Kuala Lumpur. Admission is free.
Detail information about the photography exhibition:
- Event: Yaman Ibrahim & his Mutual Friends #Kolektif 1
- Location: Matic Art Gallery, MaTIC Malaysia Tourist Center, Kuala Lumpur
- Date: 3rd September 2015 to 30th September 2015
Honestly, I felt weird seeing my own photos on display and a bit awkward when people start to ask questions. Reason being … when I shoot my photos I was totally in my selfish mode. I love the moment and I wanted to capture and keep the moment to myself. I want to look at my photos and be reminded of the feelings that I had while capturing those moments. And this is totally new to me …well, there is always a first time to anything, right?
But, seeing it being printed and hang-up on the wall triggered an excitement in me. I want to have more and more of my photos printed out on beautiful papers for my personal keeping or maybe once a while I want to share it with public through photo art galleries. I want to be an artistic photographer … a fine-art photographer maybe. Hmm what a dream huh?
And, these are my photos exhibited during the photo exhibition.
I learned a lot from this experience and I need to reassess my photography direction … again and again. So much to learn, so little time.
Ok. I gotta go now. Need to pack my gears (and my crazy COURAGE) for my next adventure 😛 , a cross-country (xc) expedition via paramotor ride from Tok Bali, Kuala Besut, Terengganu to Batu Buruk beach, Kuala Terengganu. It is going to be a long ride … will update the outcome here for sure. Bye now ….
