Portrait of Home presents black and white photographs of post-independence Singapore in the pictorialist and modernist style by 87-year-old Lim Kwong Ling, a veteran of the local salon and art photography scene. The works in this show depict different facets of home through the photographer’s eyes, from landscapes, to various occupations and industries of the time, to family photos.
Mr Lim Kwong Ling has been actively involved in the local and overseas Chinese photography scene since the 1970s. He has served as Honorary President of the Photo-Art Association of Singapore, Vice President for The Society of Worldwide Ethnic Chinese Photographers and Visiting Professor of Art Faculty of Nanjing Education University in China, among other roles.
