American photographer with local roots capturing Sabah images

12th July, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: A special exhibition entitled “Faces of Sabah” by Latana will be launched by State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun on Saturday (July 15).

Latana Schachenmann, an American with roots in Sabah, specializes in fine arts and is an accomplished photographer. “I want to show the images of Sabah people the first time I came here 30 years ago,” she said.

Latana also said that the exhibition is her very first project as a photographer after starting her career in arts. Sabah Museum director Sintiong Gelet said that there are 25 pictures from Latana’s collection.

“All the 25 black and white photographs of Sabah people are chosen by Latana as her best portrait photos about Sabah taken in Penampang and Kudat during 80’s.

“Latana donated all the pictures to Sabah Museum as she said the images are rarely seen today. The photographs are valuable in their own right,” he said.

The exhibition is held in conjunction with Sabah Museum’s 52nd Anniversary and Malaysia’s Museum Day celebrations from July 15-Oct 15. – Noor Zafira Shafie
