Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 2021 Annual Theme Photo Exhibition
Reinventing Life … in the New Normal
重塑 人生 新常态
Reinvention is the process of adapting to the changes brought about by some reasons and this change makes one feel as though it is an entirely new life.
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a catastrophic impact to the world such that life will never be the same. While there might be many who have suffered the consequences, there are also an encouraging number who have picked up the pieces of lives and beat the odds to survive. Notwithstanding the tough circumstances, they thrived. This pandemic has taught us nothing is impossible, where there is a will there is always a way.
In this theme “Reinventing Life….in the New Normal”, we call for encouragement and compassion towards our fellow mankind. Let us put our images together and send the positive vibes to everyone in the world that “life is worth living”.
We call upon photographers to submit in single images – how we have made the drastic changes, how we have adapted and how we made a positive impact against the odds.
