20 very talented Singapore photographers, each of them producing and showcasing 15 photographs. This was the key idea behind TwentyFifteen.sg, a project to showcase the works of Singapore photographers on the subject of Singapore, celebrating Singapore’s Golden Jubilee in 2015. The TwentyFifteen.sg photography works were curated by PLATFORM.sg since 2013, with a folio published for each of the selected 20 photographers.
The 20 photographers showcasing their wonderful works at TwentyFifteen.sg exhibition were some of those that I really respect a lot. At the opening reception of TwentyFifteen.sg exhibition, it was great to catch up with photographer friends to view their works on display at Jendela (Visual Arts Space). The photography works on display at TwentyFifteen.sg photography exhibition are kindly and proudly sponsored by Epson Singapore and the photo prints quality are really good.
Some of the photographers can be pretty abstract and mind boggling, while I can relate closely to some of the photographers works because of my interest in the particular fields of photography too. As a photographer myself, I can relate, feel and see what the photographers see and feel through their eyes, heart, soul and camera. The 20 talented photographers show a side of Singapore that we take for granted or our vision were “shield away by our own blinkers”.
When I was viewing the photographs on display at the TwentyFifteen.sg photography exhibition, I asked myself, how much have I know about Singapore, the people, the society? As I walked out of the TwentyFifteen.sg photography exhibition, I was in deep thoughts … Singapore may be a small country, a little red dot as some countries describe us, yet, we have grown and developed our little own red dot, with its own character, culture, society, history and norms. Have we fully understand ourselves in our Golden Jubilee SG50 year?
Take a walk down the TwentyFifteen.sg photography exhibition and feel for yourselves, what is about being Singaporean, in the Golden Jubilee SG50 and what can we do for our country’s future, our own future?
