Old-style box-camera portraits intrigue Malaysians– Photographer's pinhole pictures capture the heart and soul of the country by CAROLYN HONG, Contributing writer, Nikkei Asian Review
KUALA LUMPUR -- Observers could be forgiven for wondering why graphic designer and artist Jeffrey Lim lugs an old oil tin around with him. In an age of super-slim camera phones, it is far from obvious that Lim's tin is a combination camera and darkroom.
Lim, a youthful 39-year-old, has been travelling around Malaysia since 2014 to take photographs of people in market places and villages. "It is really as simple as light through a pinhole falling onto paper coated with silver," he said.
