The Music, Art, Style International Festival (MASiF) 2011 is an eventuality that celebrates a 3 opposite categories of art – excellent art, conform and music. One of a activities organized as an bid to favour a improved bargain of Fine Art was a Public Programmes hold during Galeri Petronas. The 3 programmes that was hold on a 16th and 17th Sep were ‘An Evening with Amri Ginang‘, where participants were given an event to be adult tighten and personal with one of Malaysia’s colonize photographers, Amri Ginang and ‘Fusion of Passion : Walk With The Artist‘, where some of Malaysia’s best painters, photographers, sculptors and illustrators speak about their latest works that are now on arrangement during Galeri Petronas. The final programme that was hold on 17th Sep during 2.00 pm, was ‘Close and Personal : Soraya Ariff Awaluddin‘. Funny how this was a usually speak that hold my eye. Maybe it was since of her certification that done me curious, or it could have been a fact that she exudes a comfortable and accessible aura that done me wanted to listen to her story.
As there was usually a few of us during a start of a talk, Ariff suggested that we all drew a seats closer to a speaker’s list for a some-more insinuate affair. The speak went on for about 3 hours, with both Ariff and Soraya pity their thoughts and opinions about everything, from photography to issues that many photographers face in Malaysia. And boy, were those thoughts and opinions of theirs really interesting! It was a small bit dampening to hear how many of a internal comparison photographers are not really obvious compared to some of a comparison artists. They also spoke on how changing times have done it easier for many to possess a digital camera. For them, it is not a emanate of how hi-tech one’s camera can be though some-more of a person’s bargain of a equipment’s functions and limitations. It was indeed an eye-opening speak for someone like me, who wants to make photography a critical hobby in a nearby future.
After a finish of a talk, we motionless to try MASiF’s outside activities for a change. As it is all about jubilee with everyone, some of a activities are hold outdoor so that everybody can be a partial of a festival. Though a skies threatened to soak everybody right to a bone that evening, it did not infer to be a dampener on their spirits as many of them went right forward with their agenda. With a song from Friday King Road, an eccentric rope that was behaving during a credentials stuffing adult a whole area, a sourroundings of a dusk is best described regulating photographs.
As we can see, MASiF is a arrange of festival that is best gifted first-hand, since a best tools of it contingency be seen, listened and gifted by ourselves in sequence to entirely conclude it.
