His photographs had been and will be published more than a thousand times. Every time we celebrate the Independence Day, the media will publish all these pictures again and again. Business enterprises, large-format picture printers, photo treatment companies will repeatedly claim credits as well as reaping cash of the pictures they use but the original artist remains uncredited.

I was very lucky to have met Malaysia great photographer Wong Swee Lin at his house, not many people here in Malaysia knew or have heard about him but to those who were born after our Independence Day 1957 sure enough have seen historical photograph taken by him, he have cover three Malaysia Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn. As a Malaysia we truly appreciated what you have done for our country, without people like you we can only here about the story without any pictures to see.
I don’t want to write long story about Wong Swee Lin here because it was too long but if you are interested to know more about him, I suggest you visit HERE
