Foreword by Eric Peris
Silent Wall began as a collective photo-project by several enthusiasts, examining ways of documenting the hand-painted mural of the external perimeter wall of Kuala Lumpur's iconic Pudu Jail in 2008.
Soon to be demolished, the mural depicting landscapes and nature was photographed and collated into bookform here, preserved for future generations of KL-ites, to ponder and reminisce as the form of a new retail development rises over its former site.
Demolition began in 2010.
explorenation.net equals travel photography, publishing, exhibition, photography education and workshops. Founded by Steven Lee in 2006, an award winning UK based freelance photographer dedicated to the personal advancement of photographic objectives for all enthusiasts. Together with photographer Andy Craggs, World Travel Photography Workshop programs was set up in 2009 to cater for a growing demand in hands-on instruction and guidance in basic photographic practice since the ownership of DSLRs have become affordable. We aim to combine travel and photography as an inspiration to learning and developing one's photographic eye, and in the process, achieve a personal objective, improved visual and communication skills. Steven has initiated the KL Photoawards in 2009 for Contemporary Portraiture (see www.klphotoawards.com). His personal works are mainly documentary and fineart in nature, often mixing travel photography with strong abstract visuals. Museo is his first Blurb printed book.
