About the Exhibition
Photographs surround us every day and everywhere. They shape the way we see the world and the way we see ourselves. Explore the changing roles of photography in Southeast Asia—from its beginnings as a tool of European exploration to the "performance" of studio portraits; from the incomplete realities of war to the rise of fine art; and finally to the memes and selfies that saturate social media today.
