Meeting the legend – Abbas

by derrick

ABBAS 45 years in photography is a exhibition currently held at the National Museum. Abbas is a Magnum photographer and I am fortunate to meet him in person and attended his workshop on photojournalism. This legendary photographer who have covered many of the world’s most terrifying wars is a man with great vision, perspective and a master in the craft of black and white photography. I took photo with him but he don’t want his photo to be published or posted. As a respect to Abbas and agreed not showing photos with his face, here are some photos of the legend.

The exhibition is now on till 18 Sep 2011 at the National Museum.
