FACES ~ A Poster Presentation

30Jun09

[ I would like to thank everyone who turned up at my poster presentation at the International Conference on Thinking (ICOT) last week. I would also like to take this opportunity to dedicate my presentation to the late Michael Jackson, who passed away on the last day of the conference, and whose music milestoned my childhood. Rest in peace.]

Presentation abstract:

If a picture tells a thousand words, then a face tells a thousand stories about who we are. Stories about where we are from. Stories about what we do. Stories about our hopes, dreams and aspirations.

This collection represents South East Asian (SEA) pride. Photos represent the faces of Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar (Burma), Singapore and Indonesia. From the four-year old gold medal figure ice skater, the trice jailed political dissident, to a young boy’s search for spiritual meaning, this collection demonstrates the richness of our expressions and our culture, traditional, modern and SEA in transition.

There are no technicalities in this presentation. This presentation is really a reminder that not everything can be broken up into models and theories. The presentation is a celebration of the human experience; and the human experience is not a technical one. It is aesthetic.

In an age where photography is gaining popularity as a choice hobby, this presentation serves also as a reminder that we mush not forget the story a subject tells – stories that brings a photo to life.
