Same Same: A Dan Lain-Lain Project
Venue:Dewan Sri Penang
A celebration of those who find themselves unable to associate with just one identity, whether it be Chinese, Indian or Malay, Same Same gives its viewers a chance to visually experience Penang’s – and Malaysia’s – incredible diversity through photographs of its multiracial citizens. The artful images of Penang’s inhabitants tell the story of a country defined by its inhabitants, who despite coming from vastly different cultures, find a way to live together in harmony.
Lithuanian photographer Paulius Staniunas (who also goes by the photographer name “All is Amazing”) conceived of the Dan Lain-Lain project after living in Malaysia for three years and observing its multicultural society. His experiences left him with a desire to give back to a country who welcomed him with open arms. The exhibition aims to bring recognition and praise to a nation whose people show one another tolerance and respect regardless of their cultural origins. His GTF exhibit will exclusively feature the faces of Penang.
