Strangers Portrait of Penang

I have been discussed with some of my friend about my photography project for this year, “Strangers Project”. The idea is very simple, to take portrait of people that we just met. Personally, i’m not the guy who talks a lot, but actually i have the interest to get to know people. So this is a good reason for me to get out from my comfort zone & explore. Never think about being rejected, it is worth trying than regret for not to do this 10 years from now. What if, today is my last day in my life? Thats how late Steve Job had his first date with his wife. Anyway, this are couple of portrait of people that i managed to break the bread and gained their trust over my 35mm lens.

This Indian Muslim guy is very talkative & pretty much likes to talk about his family. He is now 52yo, awaiting for another 3 year before he will be able to withdrew his sum of money that reside in his KWSP account. For most of us that working throughout Malaysia. About 11% of our monthly salary being deducted every month & debited to KWSP account. “As soon as i withdrew the money, i’m going to ask my son to get married”. Nothing beats the happiness of a father to see his son to be with a person that he loved.
