Grit & Grace: The Grandeur of Monochrome Malaysia is a photography project showcasing the beauty of Malaysia’s landscape and her people. Presented through a photobook and public exhibition, it covers all states within Malaysia and touches on aspects of history, geography and culture.
Grit & Grace is presented by SC Shekar and is an initiative supported by Khazanah Nasional Berhad to celebrate Malaysia’s journey and achievements as a nation. SC Shekar’s work through Grit & Grace is a reminder that Malaysia has much to offer, be it her rich natural resources, environment, or the diversity of her people.
“Grit & Grace represents the aspirations of a young nation that has achieved so much.” – Options, The Edge
