It seems the past couple of weeks have been rather exciting for photography enthusiasts in Singapore, with the Canon Photomarathon taking place last weekend, and the unveiling of ION Art and Leica Galerie’s new exhibition ‘Celebration of Photography’ happening today. This month marks the fourth iteration of the annual ION Art Photography Series, and will feature eight collections of work by eight talented home-grown photographers. Why eight, you ask? Well that’s because this exhibition is also held in conjunction with ION Orchard’s 8th anniversary.
Celebration of Photography will showcase carefully curated works from all fields of photography, including portrait, architecture, lifestyle, documentary, and sports. With such a wide array of styles, it is no surprise that the line-up of photographers is just as diverse. From 7 to 15 October (10am to 10pm daily), Ion Art and Leica Galerie invite you to come check out the works of KC Eng, Laxmi Kaul, Andrew Lum, Francisco Marin, Justin Ong, Eric Sawitoski, Marc Tan and Yuey Tan & Claire Jedrek. Here’s a preview of what’s awaiting you at the Ion Art gallery:
Shoppers and visitors at ION Orchard will also be able to sign up for a complimentary photography talk hosted by Leica Akademie and led by six of the featured artists on 7 and 14 October 2017. So if you’re keen on learning the trade or just curious about the works, make sure you sign up early.
