Books – Catalog | Imaging Selfs: New York by Soraya Yusof Talismail
Portraiture, from Kuala Lumpur to New York.
Imaging Selfs: New York is an homage within an homage – Soraya Yusof Talismail’s photographic tribute to the artists whose attributes are rooted with hints of America. It is an Americana extension of the original Imaging Selfs exhibition in Kuala Lumpur. Imaging Selfs: New York is a celebration of the ties that link the two countries. Subtle or profound, one cannot deny the artistic bind. Malaysian art in its prolific respect of local heritage has grown through the freedom of exploration that has long been an intrinsic part of American art. ‘Think beyond’, ‘go the extreme’, ‘never conform’ – these mantras resonate in the works of Imaging Selfs: New York’s 25 photographed artists.
