Featuring works from the ten participants of the inaugural Junior Shooting Home.
Level 8 Promenade, National Library Building
3 Jul to 31 Jul 2011
Home and identity take on a different look as they are explored through the eyes of ten young photographers from the inaugural batch of Junior Shooting Home, a photography mentorship programme by local visual arts centre, Objectifs.
Family, friendship, growing up, heritage and culture are all topics close to the heart and shape one’s view of what home and identity are, what they can be, or what they have ceased to be.
Mentors for the programme included local professional photographers, Yian Huang, Jean Qingwen Loo, Joseph Nair, Deanna Ng and Terence Teo.
Junior Shooting Home is supported by the National Arts Council and the National Library Board.
