it's reigning men
Galeri Petronas is currently running a photography exhibition, Photojournalism and the Imaging of Modern Malaysia 1957-2007, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Malaysia's independence. My friends (whose silhouette you see here) and me went to have a look-see. Iconic pictures we've seen throughout our lives as well as the more obscure ones. We walked into this small room to read this blown up newspaper. The headline questions the crowning of the first King. Which one of our Sultans will have that honour? Unlike the monarchy in the rest of the world, our King rotates between the Sultans every 5 years.
Photography in the exhibition is not allowed, so I snuck out this shot. Then I noticed 2 other people taking pictures. I asked the person at the reception desk. Flash not allowed. And I went along my merry way, enjoying the years as they passed by.
