Kota Kinabalu Photo Week 2014

The inaugural edition of Kota Kinabalu Photo Week (KKPW) takes place from 19 to 24 November 2014 at Suria Sabah, a shopping mall in KK. The event is organised by Jebat Photography Club.

My involvement here takes the form of a small presentation titled “Three Moments: Historicising Photographic Practices in Malaysia”. It is a summary and an expansion of my essay, “Against the Grain: Photographic Practices in Malaysia since the 1950s”, first published in volume two of Narratives in Malaysian Art: Reactions-New Critical Strategies. I am also involved as a portfolio reviewer in KKPW.

On a personal level, I see this event as a small gathering of photographers from Malaya and the Nusantara. While it is messy at the edges, I hope that such events will elevate the discourse of art and photography in places like KK, Sabah.
