HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - Bryan Chan HWM Malaysia read­ers@writeon­media.com.my

Last month was a very busy month for pho­tog­ra­phers in Malaysia be­cause there were many pho­tog­ra­phy-re­lated events that took place. First there was the sec­ond Cam­era and Elec­tron­ics Expo (CEX) at VIVA Home Mall, Cheras and just a cou­ple of weeks later, the an­nual World Press Photo (WPP) 2013 ex­hi­bi­tion was held in Bangsar Shop­ping Cen­tre.

At WPP 2013, we learned that two Malaysians won in dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories, with Dr. Chen Wei Seng grab­bing first prize in the Sports Ac­tion cat­e­gory and Ste­fen Chow, who won sec­ond prize in the Staged Por­traits cat­e­gory. At the event, we also man­aged to learn about the in­au­gu­ral OB­SCURA Fes­ti­val, an in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­phy fes­ti­val in Pe­nang that ran for 10 days and fea­tured exhibitions, work­shops, and port­fo­lio re­views. I guess I’m try­ing to say that it’s ex­cit­ing to see more Malaysians be­com­ing ac­tive in the lo­cal pho­tog­ra­phy scene.
