Majidah Hashim’s Personal Collection

an old lady sits waiting upon an old salvaged chair. a crisp clean outfit. the wooden columns – foundations of the house.

an communal way of life begins in the longhouse – built a brick, a plank, a piece of timber or zinc, at a time. this has been how the ibans have been living in decades, where every family’s children are cared for by every others’.

  1. Great shot! photo is worth thousand words!

  2. This is am amazing “composition”.

    It is like a story board.

    You begin with her foot, travel up her body, to that amazing face, and then up her arm to the post, then you are back to her face.

    She feels like she is actively waiting.


    Thank you!
