I shot a piece in Malacca for the August edition of Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia. If you are interested in prints of Malacca or other destinations I've been to head on over to my Photoshelter Galleries. You can find something for every room in the house. In the meantime, here are some shots that didn't make it into the issue. And if you haven't already check out some of the backstory here.
Since moving from Kuala Lumpur to Penang I have begun leading biweekly photo workshops for UN High Commission for Refugees in Malaysia. Apart from it being a fun and rewarding project in itself the project lets me explore KL, and a different part of KL (most of my time is in and around Pudu), in a way that I hadn't before. There's something about leading the workshop that has made me want to really get out and work to come up with something 'new' to me. Maybe it's that I am pushing others that makes me push myself a little harder? Possibly.
Here are some images I've gotten so far. Admittedly, they are random but over time (the workshops will go into early 2012) I'm hoping to bring some form into the equation, revisiting some of the people and locations with the hope of telling a more cohesive story (or stories).
I spent some time back in May shooting an assignment in Malacca. Like many assignments I might see some cool things or maybe eat some great food but what stays with me are the people that I've met along the way. Here are a few of the good citizens of Malacca.
I'll admit it - I hate shopping. Push me into a mall and I go into a near catonic state. But pay me and that's a completely different story. Which is just what happened when Travel + Leisure SEA asked me to shoot the lastest and most happening shops in Kuala Lumpur.
My friends at Wonderful Machine were kind enough to post a PDF of the layout here. Or buy your own copy and read all about what's 'hot' in KL.
