Born in Malaysia: A Photographer’s Journey

Author:

In 2010, Kenny Loh came back to Malaysia after almost two decades and found that so much had changed. Everything was different and new. With camera and notebook in hand, he set out to rediscover the land of his birth. Born in Malaysia is the result of this three-year journey.

The book highlights a Malaysia in transition. Many of the traditional crafts and business that once drove the local econmy have entered their twilight. It celebrates the individuals from all walks of life who have played their part in building this nation.

Born in Malaysia also looks at those who were born after Independence. Their stories are an important counterpoint to the stories of the Malaysian elders, as they provide the view to the future.

In his preface, Kenny writes of the many people he met and photographed, not all who are in this book but nevertheless left a lasting impression on him, “Like me, they were all born in Malaysia. And they are the keepers of our heritage.” This book is a tribute to them and everyone who is Malaysian not just by birth but also in spirit.
