Open to public

Sometimes you need to leave home to remind yourself how beautiful it is.

Sri Tioman 1 comprise 3 blocks of medium cost flats in Taman Melati. About 400 families live there. We invited the kids on a photo discovery journey to the heart of the city and back. 40 kids, ages 6-17, accepted the offer.

Day 1 started with a mini-workshop. The kids were taught photography basics: what to shoot, how to get best lighting, how to frame a picture. And most importantly: Capture images with your heart, not with your eye. We brought them to historical places and they took all kinds of photos: Plain signboards, Colourful buildings, Birds flying freely, Cars stuck in a jam, dead leaves, and faces of people full of life. Day 2 started at Sri Tioman 1 flats. This time, we asked them to take pictures of their homes and neighbourhood. Armed with newfound wonder, they rediscovered their world from a different altitude. They saw the familiar with new eyes. Found the extraordinary in the ordinary.

Here are the results:




Sama sama Beautiful  will be exhibited at the connecting pedestrian tunnel of LRT Masjid Jamek until the end of October 2018.

NOTE: Sama sama Beautiful is part of KL International Arts Festival 2018. This exhibition will also appear at the Sri Tioman flats in Sept 2018. Visit for details.
