The workshop is aimed at photographers who aspire to improve their visual storytelling through Street Photography. Curiosity can stem from the most ordinary situations, and during this workshop AikBeng Chia will share unreservedly practical tips on observation, and guide you to generate unique concepts to create images that will make a successful photo series.
AikBeng Chia (b.1968) is an Illustrator and designer. His photographic work is driven by a musing based on the bonds of human social behavior in public spaces, linked together by multi-centric municipalities. Author of Tonight the Streets are Ours (2013), a monograph on Singapore’s Little India district after dusk, SingKarPor (2015) and self published zines (2010 - ongoing), AikBeng’s vivid and gritty images of moments and people, in Singapore and various cities across the world, have garnered him a huge following on Instagram. He was a contributor to the Everyday Asia Instagram in 2014, and helmed the UK Guardian newspaper’s Travel Instagram account for a three-day special feature on Singapore in 2015. AikBeng has exhibited internationally and his works are in the collection of institutions and private collectors. www.aikbengchia.com
