Charles Pertwee 



Independent photographer since 1995, urbanite.


I began my freelance career after assisting commercial photographers having finished degrees in History and Law in London. 20 years later I have not lost the passion for photography and photojournalism in particular. In that time I have worked in first world cities, third world slums, in steaming jungles, on icy glaciers, in the presence of royalty, in the presence of warlords, slept in 5 star hotel beds and cold train station floors in pursuit of my craft and bring all my experience to bear on each and every shoot, corporate, editorial or personal.

This is a series exploring the built environment, particularly around the rivers and their confluence that give the city of Kuala Lumpur it's name.
