Over Penang

Author:

Winner of National Book Award (English) 2020 of the National Library of Malaysia (Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia) 

 

Here is a singularly new perspective of a vibrant, historical and fascinating Penang: captured by an eye in the sky that whirred over lands where hundreds of years ago scattered souls formed communities and built lives. Here is what an island of enterprise and toil, of majesty and enchantment looks like, from way up where the air currents flow. Each image is accompanied by a long-form text that brings intimacy to the scale and lends depth to the subject. Skimming clay-baked rooofs and cacophonous processions, each page of Over Penang is photojournalist David ST Loh’s unique view on his much-loved island home.
