Amek Gambar: Peranakans and Photography
Amek Gambar: Peranakans and Photography will be the Peranakan Museum’s first historical photography exhibition, tracing the history and evolution of photography in the region, with a focus on how the Peranakan community captured and projected themselves to the world through the multi-faceted medium of photographs. The exhibition includes studio and amateur
photographs of Peranakans in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Myanmar. In celebration of a donation by Mr and Mrs Lee Kip Lee of 2535 photographs to the Peranakan Museum, Amek Gambar explores the multifaceted role of photography in the lives of Peranakans. Admission charges apply.
