This is a photography exhibition featuring a collection of work done by seven visually impaired Malaysians:
Ahar bin Tabe, Ng Suzie, Jamaliah bte Mohd Yasin, Rashidi bin Abdullah, Svivabalan a/l Selvarajan, Vivian Kwek Chu Lan, Theng Sze Young.
This is a first for Malaysia on both fronts : teaching the visually impaired photography and exhibiting their work in a gallery that also fosters the appreciation of photography among the visually impaired. Seventy pieces of work will be displayed, out of which twenty-eight will also be in tactile form and audio assisted.
This exhibition is the outcome of the Sensory Photography programme created by Plus Community Partnership. The programme is intended to empower the visually impaired with a new skill and hopefully, in the future engage them with another career opportunity. The pilot programme sponsored by Huawei Malaysia, conducted 10 classes in collaboration with Studio DL and Malaysian Association of the Blind.
The Sensory Photography programme has challenged the status quo. Now the Exhibition is proof that those who are visually impaired have the potential to do more and offer great artistic perspectives in a sighted world.
This exhibition is open from 8 – 27 September 2018 at Ruang, Think City, KL.
Weekdays 10am – 6pm • Weekends 12pm – 8pm
Closed on 15 & 19 September
