For ages, people have viewed the natural world as obstacles to avoid. But for photographer Omar Ariff, who documents the stories of wildlife and other natural elements throughout the state of Perak, the natural spaces isn’t a hindrance — it’s a national treasure. Through his collection of images, Omar shines a new light on a neglected, ancient and important wilderness. His message: get out and experience it for yourself. “Just do it — take a walk in the jungle, swim under a waterfall or explore a cave,” he says. “The interaction with nature will change you, he promises.”

In this talk/slideshow, Omar presents PERAK: THE NATURAL WONDERS, a poetic collection of photographs that tells the story of Perak’s natural diversity.
