There are some gorgeous photography exhibitions to catch in Singapore this month

Singapore has been filled with photography exhibitions lately. Just last month, we took a look at some great stuff at showcases such as #MadAboutSingapore2016ION’s Art Photography Series, and Wong Maye-E’s North of the DMZ. In case you missed them, fear not, here are six photography exhibitions which you can still check out:

Notable local photojournalist Wong Maye-E, who showcased some of her pictures she took in North Korea during her two years she was there, will be exhibiting images of the word “sayang” inspired by 20 works of Singapore literature. The Shades of Sayang exhibition is part of this year’s Singapore Writers Festival. It’s happening at the Arts House and it’s free to attend.

Ephemera (Nov 12)

Organized by Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA), a leading organization supporting budding photographers and street photography, Ephemera is a pop-up exhibition happening at The Substation. IPA put out an open call to the public, and will exhibit the best submissions they got for the duration of 18,000 seconds.

Daido Moriyama Prints and Books 1960s-1980s (Through Nov 13)

Part of the Singapore International Photography Festival, this retrospective on the father of Japanese street photography will transport you back in time, to a darker side of Japan between the 60s and 80s through his work. Tickets are priced at $15 per person. But hurry as the exhibition ends this weekend.

The Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) returns for its fifth year to celebrate this widely accessible form of art. One of the biggest highlights this year is the recurring Open Call Showcase, which pretty much gives the lesser-known photographers a platform to showcase their work. For the first time ever, 240 works by 26 artists (out of the 40 that were picked by an international jury of curators) will be showcased in six different MRT stations along the Downtown line. You’ll have the freedom to hop on and off to check out the photos at stations within the arts, heritage, and design districts like Bugis, Rochor and Little India, right through to Newton, Botanic Gardens and Beauty World. 

Women in Photography (Through Nov 20)

For the second time, Singapore’s center for photography and film Objectifs have turned their cameras to focus on women photographers and filmmakers. The Women in Photography exhibition will see the works by 16 women photographers who’ll be displaying compelling visual narratives that chronicle daily struggles, observations, and the universal theme of humanity and empathy. Some of the photographers who will be exhibiting their works are Sim Chiyin, a Singaporean documentary photographer who is currently one of the 18 in the world represented by the New York-based VII Photo Agency; Tanya Habjouqa, Jordanian photojournalist and part of the founding team behind Rawiya, Middle East’s first all-women photographic collective; Olivia Arthur, a British photographer from the Magnum Photos agency

The Photograph as Atlas (Nov 25- Jan 27)

This is a part of the ongoing Singapore Biennale and also serving as the launch of the book by the same name, the exhibition will feature Singaporean artist-photographer Robert Zhao Renhui’s images focused on the natural landscape history of Singapore which he mapped out using a self-made mobile expedition vehicle, and work by Ang Song Nian from Indonesia, who is preoccupied by the recurring haze in Singapore.
