Photographic Exhibitions

I guess that there are so many things running around in this little brain of mind that even things like putting up another set of photographs up at Citylink can slip my mind. Well, if you have wandered past the 1st 25 images from my Rajasthan trip and liked them, the 2nd set of images are up there now. Thanks to the help of Wan Sheng, Paul Fong and my assistant Betty. Paul put a post of it on his blog. I guess that I was not pretty enough to warrant a frontal picture. Just kidding Paul, :). It is a nice photograph.

But you know what, Terence Tay aka MrSanguine, had an exhibition of fantastic images which he took in Calcutta of aid work up at Basheer's Gallery in Bras Basah Complex. I only caught it last weekend but I am afraid that it is over. But the images are still up on his blog here. I must say that I really enjoy Terence's portrait because of the dignity he gives his subjects. Sometimes it is all too easy to simply exploit the plight of the less fortunate people we meet.

The exhibition is part of the Month of Photography happening now. And there are more solo exhibitions of photographers working in Singapore at Basheer's including one by Joseph Nair of Arty Angst? An aimless blog. I know Joe because he has assisted Wesley and been in my studio before. I have seen his work and it has a raw charm. Definitely someone to look out for.

Joe is not only having a solo show, he is also part of the Shooting Home 2005 exhibition at Epsite. My assistant Betty, has her image fronting the show. Way to go Betty!

Oh, do I have to mention that Henri-Cartier Bresson has an exhibition of early works at The Arts House and Robert Doisneau has an exhibition at Alliance Francaise. You all knew that already didn't you?

How do you stay up to date with all these exhibitions? I didn't know until you mentioned it.

I'm going.
I missed Ansel Adams a couple of years ago after coming across it on some old newspaper I was going to throw away.

To be honest, I do not keep up. I have all this work that I want to do and have my nose in the ground. But being photographer, everyone talks to me about photographic events and their take on it. So, even though I am more or less still off the plane from Chicago, I am told what's going on by the people I meet. Great ain't it?

Heng, I do have a shot from the front, but the batteries of my flash died so it's underexposed. Talk about embarassing. I am very lucky I don't do this for a living ;-)

yes, having a local
community is so important for these things to grow...

A plug where a plug is due. I guess Kiampa is right, we are a community. :)
