He is also interested in the marriage of cultures and traditions he sees and experiences. In 2015, he produced a dummy book of selfie images he made in North Korea. His work has been exhibited in Singapore, Malaysia and Ireland. He exhibited his piece “Blink” at the Singapore Art Exhibition in 2009. Influenced by her personal experiences, visual artist Lyn Low (b. 1992, Singapore) approaches her concepts with sentiment, using photography as a means of inquiry into the human condition. A recent graduate of Nanyang Technological University, Lyn Low was awarded the prestigious Kwek Leng Joo Prize of Excellence in Photography in 2015. Her latest exhibitions include Immeasurable, at the Bangkok University Gallery (Thailand), Undescribed, at DECK (Singapore), the Noise Festival Exhibition (Singapore) and the Pingyao International Photography Festival (China). Jovian Lim b.1984 grew up in Singapore. He has a BFA in Photography from the School of Art, Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University. He derives great pleasure in reframing approaches to photography through abstraction and capturing everyday phenomena in our environment. Jovian’s photography hovers between realism and romance. Towing the line between the simple and sublime. Using commonplace material, he investigates ever more rarefied forms of expression, attempting to express that which is immutable, stripped of time, space and particularity. Liu Ying graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) degree in Photography and Digital Imaging from School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University in 2015. She believes that a photograph can and should provoke introspection in both the photographer and the viewer. And thus, with her keen interest in the human condition, Liu Ying contemplates the sights and stories around her through photography. Her works have been exhibited at Asian Women Photographers’ Showcase (2015), Goodman Arts Centre (2015), Pingyao International Photography Festival, China (2014) and Singapore Art Museum under Noise Singapore The Apprenticeship Programme (2013). Sara Ho Shi Ning (b.1991, Singapore) is a visual artist that uses photography together with her background in graphic design to express herself in her work. As a collector of knick-knacks and random paraphernalia, she enjoys how objects are able to house a world of narratives. She expresses herself through quirky aesthetics and colour to visually convey stories of the heart. Kang Li (b.1984) is a Singaporean Chinese, born to parents who migrated from Malaysia. His photography pursuits began with a journalism stint in Nepal, where he covered the nation's abolishment of its monarchy and the rise of the Maoists into parliamentary powers. Later, he returned to college, from where he graduated as top journalism student and class valedictorian in 2009. He has since departed from full-time photojournalism and is now a commercial film director. Photography remains an important language for him. Marvin Tang (b.1989) is a visual artist who uses photography as a tool of investigation. He is interested in the parallels between space and human interactions. Crafting images that he hopes will create new narratives in everyday spaces. Shyue Woon is trained as an architect and interested in the intertwining of built environment with different disciplines in art. During the day, he uses architecture to turn aspiration and dreams into constructible reality. By night, the camera becomes his tool to deconstruct and reverse reality and spaces into fiction and dreams. His work previously been exhibited in Odessa (Ukraine), Cambodia, Malaysia and Singapore; his works were selected for +50, a collective for Singapore's Photographers; and to be part of “Thank you, Mr Lee” (2015), a book tribute to late LKY.
