IMAGES Penang offers you a glimpse of Fiveloaf’s hometown through his own lenses and narration. It is a photo journal that offers readers and travelers a glimpse of its culture, tradition, heritage, lifestyle and the people that makes it what it is today “a potpourri of sorts”~ at least that is how its founding father, Captain Francis Light envisions it to be when he first set foot in 1786 giving every single race an opportunity to inhabit and to trade.

Where photography is concern, Fiveloaf is a purist. Inspired by Henri-Cartier Bresson, he constantly challenges himself to shoot miminum. His images are devoid of modern day studio enhancement, cropping and image manipulation and Fiveloaf does only monochrome shots. And that to him is the raw beauty of street photography and raw photography could only happen when once in awhile, some natural imperfections remain.
