OBSCURA Festival of Photography 2016

The aim of the festival is rooted in education, understanding and togetherness through premier events that take place throughout the festival

OBSCURA Festival is Malaysia’s premier photography festival that celebrates photography from Asia and around the globe. Each year, the festival hosts a series of exhibitions, talks, workshops, professional portfolio reviews and slide shows. The festival also organises fringe events, including youth photography programmes with its festival partners.

Workshops 2016
The OBSCURA Masterclasses is one of the leading photography masterclasses in the region. The programmes being run this year owes itself to the highly successful photography programmes we’ve run since 2013 with some of the industry’s leading practitioners and tutors. Each of the 2016 programmes have been specially designed from the ground up to push photographers to rethink their approach to photography.

Alumni from previous programmes have gone to win major photographic prizes, including the World Press Photo award. These programmes are catered for emerging and experienced photographers. The workshops are a great place for building lasting friendships, networks and knowledge. It is a stepping stone to becoming part of the fabric of professional photographers, within and outside Asia, while creating work that is both meaningful and of the highest artistic standards.
