48: Bukit Bintang @ The Print Room
48 consecutive hours prowling the heart of Kuala Lumpur with a camera, is an experiment that sounds equal parts exhausting and crazy fun. Monochromatic photographs are typically boring, compounded here by blurry images and inconsequential pairing of objects, which relegate most exhibits to amateurish products. Shean Tan's narrative-driven compositions and Alia Zulasmin's deliberate contrasts display potential, but it is gallery director Paul Rudd that dominates this exhibition. Powerful portraits of night denizens and their environment, challenges one to visit this seedy part of KL, a curiosity stoked by the photographer's re-framing of neglected subjects.
