FOTO STUDIO: Reunion Portraits with Xia Yi

by Xia Yi


Foto Studio is an archival photo collaboration by Snackfood & Xia Yi  aim to document the reunion of friends and families over a portrait photography at Snackfood.

The idea behind Foto Studio took inspiration from the photographic series, The Malaysian Woman மலேசியப் பெண் (2022) by Ang Xia Yi.  An ongoing body of portraiture works documenting contemporary women in reimagined landscapes and memories found in the archives of family photographs belonging to her grandfather, Goon Kok Woh from the late 1940s to early 2000s. Each portrait was an attempt to reinterpret specific photographs of his through the different backdrops made using household textiles. 

At Foto Studio, you get to choose one backdrop of choice: Grandma's Kitchen, Waterfall, Casa Milano or Prairie and Alps. 

    Your shots will be selected by the acute eye of the photographer, and you will receive 2 copies of 4R photo prints produced at Pak Tai Photo Studio in Petaling Street.

    The service fee is RM200, covering up to 4 people per session. If you wish to add a headcount, there will be additional RM100 per person. *Pets are welcome!
