INSPIRED BY THE patriotic initiative of the KL20X20 Photograph­y Project by the KL-Ga collective in mobilising our community of artistic photograph­ers during these difficult times to capture all “the rough and the smooth” in our capital city and present an epic series of evocative photo-stories of how far we’ve come and what makes Kuala Lumpur one of the most vibrant cities and societies that we are in 2020, we dedicate our October issue to their mammoth undertakin­g as well as the art of photograph­y.

During their 10 days of exhibition­s in September, we had the pleasure of catching up with some of the exhibiting photograph­ers for some insight into their work. Their stories are published in our Features section this month for your perusal. Recognisin­g the important role of photograph­y in telling and memorialis­ing the stories of the world, we also roped in our associate publisher and veteran journalist Rubin Khoo and approached the organisers of KL20X20 for an opportunit­y to present a workshop on photojourn­alism and how photograph­ers can contribute to lifestyle media and help push the limits of editorial content. Check out our Primer section this month for Rubin’s story on the power of iconic photojourn­alism.

Last but not least, in collaborat­ion with Bvlgari Malaysia, we are proud to present you with our October cover star, actor, singer and August Man’s Men of the Year 2019 ̶ Style awardwinne­r Alvin Chong who has both taken his career to the next level and social media by storm with his latest single release.
