Featuring works from the ten participants of Junior Shooting Home 2012.
Family, friendship, growing up 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. These issues take on a different look as they are explored through the eyes of ten young photographers from Junior Shooting Home, a photography mentorship programme by Objectifs. Encouraged to start from home, these young photographers show us the stories of the people and places around us.
Mentors for Junior Shooting Home 2012 included Deanna Ng, Chia Yan Wei, Yian Huang, Joseph Nair and Jean Qingwen Loo. Participants took part in the mentorship programme over 3 weeks. Their final projects were exhibited at the National Library Building (Level 8, from 22 Jul to 22 Aug 2012).
I hope that through this project, I am able to remind people that the careless usage of disposable non-biodegradable products can lead to the destruction of our environment.
