It seems like only yesterday, but my last posting was in April! I have been in Malaysia for awhile, organising the KL Photoawards finalists, Winners Awards evening and other side projects, and have not even been photographing in KL, apart from a half Saturday morning.
All these are water under the bridge, so to speak. Just last weekend in June, the Pudu Jail wall on the Jalan Pudu flank was demolished to make way for a road bypass and the rest of the prison is scheduled for demolition soon, to be replaced by another anonymous retail complex. You may wish to follow our readers photos and videos of the demolition here. I foresaw all these some two years ago when the papers reported the redevelopment of the site, and began The Silent Wall book project, documenting the external wall mural piece by piece, with the help of photography enthusiasts Roziah, Joanna, Li-Ling and Jerrica. The book will be published, in one form or another, following the working copy which is also available for sale at Blurb.com, but we are tying up the loose ends and researching into a few more items.
I have also started tweeting, and signing myself up (!) to the 365Project which I'm attempting to document 1 year with photographs on a daily basis. Please do visit and pass your comments.
