Life In Alor Setar

Year: 2013-2015 | Status: Work In Progress | YongL


Alor Setar is my mother’s hometown. It is situated north in West Malaysia, it is also the largest paddy export in Malaysia. Alor Setar is an interesting place with tons of cultural values, interesting people and landscape which is mostly paddy field. Alor means ‘Small Stream’ and Setar is referring to the tree ‘Setar’. The purpose of the series is to capture the scenery and life of the people/villagers around the paddy field which is also their HOME, and how they interact with the nature.
