Papillon 2013 | An exhibition by Isabella Tan

I meant to do this much earlier but so much has been happening on my side. Pretty insane I must say. Anyhewww, life goes on and it's an inevitable cycle that we all go through. That aside, the ultimate objective of this post isn't about me but a very dear friend/sister of mine who's organizing her very first photography exhibition - 'PAPILLON', which means butterfly in French. 

"A butterfly is a symbol of metamorphism and transformation. Its an idea of growth and emergence on beauty into the World". 

I will keep this really short and straight to the point. Just need to make sure we get the message across. Simple - do support her and show her some love by just attending the exhibition! That would mean the world to her, your presence :) This girl has worked so hard and has definitely come a long way. I've worked with her and I must say, she's one of the most professional and detail-oriented photographer I've seen. Despite her young and tender ( tender? haha! :P ) age, I can safely say .. she knows what she's doing. I mean, let's admit it .. she's definitely one of the many elite photographers to date. I'll let her photography speak for itself alright? x 

Here are a few of my favorites from our collaborations and some of her recent work that I found really impressive. There will be a lot more new artworks displayed during the exhibition, so do feel free to pop by! I was told that Dato Jimmy Choo himself will also be paying a visit tomorrow. So, more reasons to come by, no? ;) x 

This would be her very first photography exhibition, and probably the last one in Malaysia before she departs for New York to further her studies. I am beyond happy and excited! I guess everyone who knows Bella personally .. would know how much this means for her, and how much effort she has put in to make this happen. To put up an exhibition this huge, single-handedly? That's definitely not something a typical 19 year old would/could do. Two thumbs up for you hun! xx 

This exhibition records her growth as a young artist and the development of her creativity since 2011. She shares her behind the scenes work, never seen before images and what inspires her to become who she is today. I am glad that I am a part of this exhibition and I really hope the world/everybody else could see how I see Bella ; so much potential, so much talent .. and ( I'm sorry, I'm lost of words). I'll sum it up in 5 words? SHE'S A BALL OF JOY, if that even makes sense? Haha. 

Come join us at Papillon at Whitebox in MAP, Publika, Solaris Dutamas from 6th August to 8th August 2013. Admission is free and her work will be up for sale. 

Her conceptual pieces are really worth buying. You should really see it for yourself. But hey, I shan't keep you guys any longer. The anticipation awaits. Come and see the world through Bella's eyes. It's gonna be quite a ride ;)
