Photography

 

A photograph might capture a moment, but it also tells us a story.

- Ali MC

 

A story-teller at heart, Ali MC uses photography to transport viewers into worlds rarely seen.

From Rohingya refugee camps to life on the fringes of Timor-Leste, Ali MC’s photos bring to life the struggles, sadness, smiles and stories of people from around the globe to create an ever-expanding body of work that is both unique and beautifully shot.

Drawing on influences of classic photojournalism, Ali MC primarily uses film, preferring the patience and one-shot opportunity the medium provides.

Rather than seeing film as limiting, Ali MC instead relishes the challenge of capturing the moment in a precise and inspired way.

Ali MC’s new exhibition, Nong Shain Maw: Stone Breakers of the East Khasi Highlands is a medium format photography exhibition. It documents the life for the Nong Shain Maw as ‘the people who break the rock.’
