A Tale of Two Hills

“A Tale of Two Hills” is a unique mentorship programme aimed at nurturing visual narrators to document natural heritage and cultural narratives of Malaysia’s earliest colonial hill stations, Penang Hill and Maxwell Hill. Eight narrators, four for each location, were selected from a pool of applicants to work on their respective topics over six months with support and guidance from Jeffrey Lim, photography artist and cultural worker, anthropologist Wan Atikah bt Wan Yusof and author of “Beguiled On Larut Hills”, Liew Suet Fun.

The Exhibition showcases the work of these visual narrators and explores a wide range of topics ranging from sustainability, biodiversity, species endemicity to human society and the cultural impacts of colonialism, migrations and the inter-
generational dynamics of communities living on and around the highlands.
