An enthusiastic group of photo enthusiast who join my workshop today at Studio 807, Kuala Lumpur.

In the workshop I showed the step by step basics of setting up CLS with one Speedlight at a time until there were 4 Nikon Speedlights firing simultenously to create a 'studio' lighting effect using umbrellas and home made snoots and diffusers.

Great fun.

Next workshop, 29th and 30th July 2006.

World Refugee Day...

Making the Invisible,Visible:
A Glimpse of Urban Refugees in Malaysia - In Commemoration of World Refugee Day

A Photo Exhibition by Sarah Hoibak
24/6/2006 - 23/7/2006

WORLD REFUGEE DAY is a salute to the indomitable spirit and courage of the world’s refugees, not just in enduring the dangers and violence of the crises that made them refugees, but also in the courage they show in rebuilding their lives and contributing to society in difficult or unfamiliar circumstances.

It is celebrated on 20 June every year, all over the world.

The theme of World Refugee Day this year is hope – Keeping the flame of hope alive.

Refugees show incredible strength in their oftentimes dangerous journeys to find sanctuary for their families and themselves. In every step of their journey, refugees carry with them an unshakable, unrelenting hope for basic survival, sustenance and protection.

By hanging on to hope that they can, one day, rebuild their lives, refugees defy all odds. On World Refugee Day, we celebrate the hope and courage of refugees for a safe life and better future for themselves and their families.

Refugees in Malaysia

There are some 46,000 refugees and asylum-seekers in Malaysia today, mostly from the Indonesian province of Aceh and from Myanmar,as well as other countries.

Unlike migrants, refugees do not choose to leave their countries; they are compelled to do so because of difficult living conditions in their home countries such as armed conflict, serious public disorder and complex human rights issues.

The refugee communities are scattered throughout Malaysia, living mostly in the Klang Valley. There are no refugee camps in Malaysia. Instead, refugees share living spaces in groups of up to 20 people, living in low-cost apartments, urban villages or housing estates side-by-side with Malaysians.

THE UN REFUGEE AGENCY (UNHCR) leads and coordinates international action to protect and assist refugees and find long term solutions for their plight. UNHCR strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek international protection and find safe refuge in another state, and to return home voluntarily if circumstances so permit.

In Malaysia, UNHCR works with Malaysian partners to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. World Refugee Day 2006 is jointly organised by UNHCR with NGO partners and the refugee communities.

Artist Statement:

"I see the barriers, I witness the walls while working- both physical and psychological, that keep refugees invisible to Malaysian society.

Through these images, I want to evoke empathy for refugees' fears and hopes, joys and despair, and make the invisible, visible."

Bio Data:

The Canadian born Sarah Hoibak has always known amongst her friends and family as "the photographer", documenting their lives and surroundings, using the camera as a means to unite them.

She attended McGill University where she completed a degree in psychology and the social studies of medicine and conducted research on the socio-economic burden of Tuberculosis in migrant populations. Through her travels and studies she interacted with people of low income, with new immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers and she was compelled to use her camera to document their stories, their trials and tribulations. It was the emotions witnessed on a flight home from London to Montreal with 60 refugees being resettled from a Refugee Camp in Tanzania that led her to pursue an internship with UNHCR Malaysia in the community services and public information units where she has had the wonderful opportunity to work in a very hands on capacity with the refugee population there.

Her future work and academic studies will attempt to document the urban refugee landscape through the lens of the camera to evoke empathy and encourage conversation and debate, and through epidemiological studies of the socio-economic factors influencing their health to help to change policy for increased access to health services.

This exhibition will be officiated by Dr. Volker Turk, UNHCR representative on Saturday, June 24th at 4pm.

A dialogue with Sarah Hoibak will be held at The Photographers' Gallery on the 2nd July (Sunday) at 4pm. All are welcome. Admission free.
