Metals by Ming

I got to know Ming Thein from Flickr and over the years had became a fan of the work of this remarkable man. The word got out that he had some of his work on show at Centre for Asian Photographer over at Jaya ONE. And since Anita and the boys wanted to check the place anyhow, so I thought I could hit two birds with one stone.

Why not?

The Centre was a lot smaller than I thought. Privately funded, it had a cafe at the lower floor and you take a step on the top floor of the duplex unit to see the exhibition area.

Ming had around a couple of dozens of prints on display. The theme concerns metalwork. People working with metals and fabrication. Quite literally.

The prints were gorgeous, but I found that the walls were too crowded. And the lack of narrative to take me through the photos were disconcerting. Maybe I was used to exhibits being of a certain look. This certainly was a slight departure to it.

None the less, the works would be something to be proud of. Something worth looking at, both the work and the centre.

The centre is located on the second floor of the newly reopened Jaya ONE.
