Imagine a class where you explore the magnificence and uniqueness of your own country, its colourful culture and its remote wilderness, through the lens of a camera. This was the experience for a group of advanced photography students at the Universiti Brunei Darussalam. The culmination of class field trips as well as many hours analysing, sorting and editing images is this A5, seventy-two page book. Printed with a black background throughout each student has three double-page spreads to showcase their photography. They are (in order as they appear in the book) Abu, Bash, Bailey, Irene, Habri, Mardhiah, Faiqah, Sally, Zuki, and Zach.
