From 8 to 21 May, see our capital city through the eyes of five different photographers at #ThisIsKualaLumpur

What is Kuala Lumpur to you? That is a really subjective question, isn't it—while KL is home to some, it is also a melting pot of cultures, a growing city where skyscrapers stand out amongst heritage buildings; a rich tapestry and a blank slate both at once, where you are welcome to add to its narrative.


At #ThisIsKualaLumpur, discover our capital city through the diverse observations of photographers who have made KL their home. The photo project will be on display on the third floor of Urbanscapes House, where it'll be an interactive experience: besides the photo exhibition, the participating photographers will share their work though insightful talk sessions, and visitors will also be able to join them on day/night photo walks through their favourite parts of the city—sounds like a great way to spend the weekend if you ask us.


Get to know a little more about the featured photographers who will be part of the #ThisIsKualaLumpur project here:
