Re-Visiting Kuala Lumpur is a group photography exhibition featuring the works of photographers Eric Peris, Lee Hong Leng & K.F. Choy.

The photographic prints include the view from the revolving restaurant of Federal Hotel in Kuala Lumpur from 1976 and present day. 

The images from the past were shot by Eric Peris, who was then a journalist with the New Straits Times.

The photographs depict scenes of Kuala Lumpur such as Batu Road (now renamed Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman), Jalan Bukit Bintang and Benteng (meaning river bank in Malay), which was known for its wide selection of food during the evening and late night.

The project took some four months to complete.

The exhibition will be launched on Feb 7 at 8pm by Datuk Dr Mazlan Othman , director of the ICSU Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
