In the Face of Disability
was an up lifting photo exhibition for Jordan and Brendon and they were happy to have gone to see the collection. That experience had stimulated them to seeing the disabled people they come across with new understanding – with care and empathy.

This was the second time Victor Chin showed his photographs at Kimi Gallery Café, in Tamam Tun Dr Ismail. It was displayed there from 17 November to 31 December 2007. Victor’s first collection of photos of the disabled was shown here in 2005. The two occasions were hosted by Kimi Gallery Café and supported by Applied Imaging.

Great care has gone into the planning and execution of these images. Pictorial composition and appropriate lighting help to evoke the drama and atmosphere of each captured moment. The black-and-white digital techniques of dodging and burning are later employed to filter out any distracting background/peripheral elements so that the portraits are allowed to ‘speak’ for themselves.

Victor’s exhibition was reported by the local newspaper, to read the write up, click  The Star.
