Another 3D art gallery in Melaka where this one is on a much smaller scale and privately operated with a twisted spelling for the name. Photographfie, a combination of 'Photography and Selfie' we assume.

The paintings are pretty standard here while there are quite a lot in this gallery. This is also located in the main city area just next to the Mahkota Parade too. For any selfie lover or those who love 3D art galleries, you can check this place out.
