The Koboi Balik Kampung photographic series was shot during my visit to Kuala Lumpur from Vancouver in 2013. The 13th general elections had just concluded in Malaysia and the excitement was still in the air. Meanwhile, the government of British Columbia had announced a multi-billion dollar LNG investment by PETRONAS. Indeed, I had returned home (balik kampung) to news of Malaysian hegemony and the stirrings of native discontent, my ‘home away from home’. As thecontradictory affectations of pride and dread subside in me, the ironies and insights of this merging of worlds has become my irrepressible muse. The conditions are right for another photographic series – Koboi Kembara Lagi or, with poetic license, The Koboi Rides Again!
