Nabil Rosman’s Origin, Faces of KL and City of Life


Nabil Rosman from Kota Baru was chosen this year as one of the winners of the most prestigious photography competitions in the world – the Hasselblad Masters Awards 2018.

Nabil has created three series specially for the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Arts Festival:

Tradition is a series of pictures focusing on traditional crafts and professions.

In this theme, Nabil conveys the message that even in this modern era, there are still individuals who steadfastly work in traditional professions to preserve the multi ethnic cultures that shape our unique identity as Malaysians.

A Bit of Kuala Lumpur is a series of pictures taken at the streets in Kuala Lumpur.

We tend to take small things that happen around us for granted. It is important for us to take a step back to appreciate the moment as it may not be the same again.

Living the Life is a series of portraits highlighted the smiles and joy in the subjects’ faces.

They are living a simple life and yet they manage to feel happy with what they have.

Money is not everything in life- So be happy with what you have, and make the most of it.
