​Koboi Balik Kampung presents a very personal perspective on the complexities of contemporary Malaysian art and society. It was conceived in the course of my visit to Malaysia for Aliran Semasa {RearView Forward}, a series of events curated by Roopesh Sitharan in June and July, 2013. The images were gleaned from my activities in Kuala Lumpur and its surroundings and set, by way of their titles, within the idiomatic milieu of Bahasa Melayu. The series was mainly shot by my daughter Durga Rajah who was my constant companion on this trip.
