“I love photography when it rains in Kuala Lumpur. The weather in KL gives me the creative spark to photograph the street in all sorts of conditions. Apart from that, Kuala Lumpur has diverse cultural ceremonies and events across all races and religions. This gives me even more opportunity to document and learn more about our Malaysian heritage.” – Amirul Johari
