Nelson and Dawn met in Melbourne while they were studying and came home with a love story. Nelson majored in film back in his university days but has since started out his own apparel business in Marina Square.
Those who know me well know that I am like Nelson; I switched my major from photojournalism to film a year back and never quite looked back. Though NTU is nothing like a film school, I pretty much fell in love with the guerilla spirit of independent filmmaking. Many times, I have found myself asking where my heart truly belongs. I have yet to find an answer.
I went for a photojournalism showcase last night and there was a sudden revelation; that maybe I don’t have to choose at all. As much as I eschew labels, I’m beginning to come to terms with the fact that I am a storyteller in all sense of the word. While I do have my own personal expressions, I find more joys expressing those without a voice, those hidden stories we wittingly or unwittingly ignore or forget. Distinctions such as ‘film’ or ‘photography’ should not bother me at all.
I was speaking to a couple about why I continue doing wedding photography in Singapore, the way I do it. My answer was instant and instinctive – Because I want to show that beautiful photographs can be made in Singapore.
