Faces of Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is an extraordinary place, not only it has been around since 1857, which also, the people who have been here, made here their home. What they brought with them, are the rich diversity of traditions, cultures, habits, faiths and hopes. In this historical muddy confluence, ironic concrete jungle has taken away our bare feet off the green grass. The governing bodies continuing its footstep of demolition historical sites, 114 years old prison demolished to make way for shopping complex, cultural buildings of Jalan Sultan to be demolish for the construction of railway. Not something to be proud of.

Before the cultural city suffers another losses for urbanization, i'd decided to start a little project, documenting life of the diversities- "100 Faces of Muddy Confluence". Would be great if other photographers want to join too.



Pudu Prison is not the first and definitely will not be the last heritage building that is forced to make way under the spell of urbanization. For we, are certainly a lost cause, for fail to signify strength in time of crisis and fail to stand up protect our heritage. Stand for your heritage, your passion and your right.

Awakening: Urbanization a Curse.
