A photography art project that varied from camera building, to print-making, to social exchanges and research on the concepts of identity. The project is named ‘Kanta’ which means lens in malay. Kanta as a metaphor on the projection of an image, but also as a way of seeing, different lenses/ filters that affects the image, the way we see.
The project has gone through two main phases, namely:– Kanta Box Kamra, camera-building, exploration of techniques & engagements; and Kanta Portraits, research and field trips to communities, exploring the concepts of identity and the state.
