I am currently working as a press photographer for a local newspaper and reside in Kuala Lumpur and of course it is part of my duty to document the city every day. My intention on using mobile phone cameras is to share the situation of every day Malaysian life. I like to show the power of the mobile phone in this day and age as one of the best mediums for communicating. It’s in everyone’s hand and is far more effective and faster than a traditional camera. We can make pictures of what we want to convey and keep people aware of their surroundings instantly. Most of my pictures I take is of daily life oriented in a journalistic way.
