Art of Cultures
As the saying goes, art shapes the character and culture of a society. The annual theme exhibition invites photographers to explore the customs, social behaviour and lifestyle of the society in single images.
This year, people all over the world are living an extraordinary chapter in history with the COVID-19 outbreak. Although there are fewer restrictions now compared to when Malaysia was placed under the Movement Control Order (MCO) in March, our lives will never be the same again.
While we are limited in our freedom to move about, we are not limited in our freedom on creative thinking. To celebrate this freedom, the KLPF will feature images taken by Malaysian photographers during the MCO, regardless of whether they were on lockdown or on duty. This collection will be an archive of this historic moment of the 21st century in Malaysia.
Klang is one of the oldest cities in Malaysia and also the Royal Town of Selangor. It is steeped in history and culture dating back more than 100 years. Klang is one of the best places to walk down the streets of heritage, listen to the stories of the ancient Sultanate and savour the tastes of traditional cuisines. This gallery takes viewers to rediscover the charms of this heritage city of Klang.

A portfolio is a collection of a work that reflects the character, attributes and style of the photographer. It is a method of self-discovery and a way to present a photographer’s personal thoughts.

Here are the 10 photographers hand-picked for this exhibition.
