Our Masters of Photography global tour continues as Elliott Erwitt’s Great Scottish Adventure was unveiled in Asia.

The Straits Adventure

To recreate the wondrous journey undertaken by Elliott across our stunning homeland we invited Leica photographer Chong Yew, renowned photojournalist How Hwee Young, Penang based photographer Jordan Lye, lifestyle icon Sabrina Van Cleef Ault and food blogger Daniel Goh on ‘The Straits Adventure’...

‘The Straits Adventure’

A journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur ‘The Straits Adventure’ took our intrepid explorers on a breathtaking photographic journey to capture the beauty of historical and iconic landmarks in Singapore and Malaysia.

Our voyagers’ first stop was Shenton Way capturing the fast pace everyday life of local Singaporeans, followed by a visit to Fort Canning Hill to soak up Singapore’s colonial history.  The day was topped off with dinner at Jumbo Seafood Riverside Point to sample Singapore’s famous Chilli Crab – a hit with all the gang!

On day two the group headed to Kota Tinggi to bask in the beauty of the waterfalls and snap some shots of the majestic landscape.  Check out Sabrina captured on the edge of the river... 

On the third day our friends took shots of modern day Kuala Lumpur with cutting edge snaps of the city’s famous Twin Towers.  Dinner at Qba Westin was warmly welcomed after a busy few days exploring.  Our resident foodie blogger on the trip, Daniel Goh confirmed; ‘The Macallan 15 Years Old Fine Oak pairs beautifully with Chinese style wok-fried pork ribs, it brings out the sweet caramel notes of the whisky’.  Sounds mouth wateringly delicious to us, why not try it out for yourself?

The final stop on this adventure took our guests to Zebra Square in Kuala Lumpur, where Elliott Erwitt and The Macallan’s own Ken Grier formally unveiled The Macallan Masters of Photography: Elliott Erwitt Edition. Along with Elliott’s 58 images captured on his Scottish Adventure Daniel Goh, Chong Yew, How Hwee Young  and Sabrina Van Cleef Ault exhibited their shots captured throughout their own adventure creating a fascinating comparison of Asian and Scottish culture.

Have you explored this part of the world before? Does the colourful collage of food, people and landscape inspire you to visit?

Why not take a trip around your own homeland and capture the buildings, people or landscapes that encapsulate the heart of your native country?  Grab your camera and start shooting, you could be in with a chance of winning a Leica camera in our Masters of Photography competition.
