Prof. Ismail Hashim is the doyen of Malaysian photography. Passed away recently, this is a rare shot of him nestled in between subjects that matters to him most and quite often depicted in his works. Unknown to many, Ismail is camera shy and I was most privileged to immortalize him over a cup of coffee. Pictures taken at Kedai Kopi Chuan Foong, Jln Chan Siew Teong, Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

  1. Hello. My name is Haidah and I am an A level student, currently doing a research on fine art photography, which puts Prof. Ismail Hashim as my main subject. I would like to reach out to his family to conduct an interview regarding his masterpieces. If you have any contact details and if its no trouble for you, can you send it to me via email? Your kindness would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
