Event Details

What do we see in Nature photographs? What meaning do we derive from them? For those who may not have the opportunity to experience certain aspects of Nature, photography offers its viewers a window to its wonders. However, do Nature photographs accurately reflect reality? Or do they merely reflect the photographer’s personal perception based on how they react to what is seen? Sometimes truths may be manipulated to convey an idealized or sensationalized version of Nature, perhaps even to an extent of becoming Nature pornography. On the other hand do all photographs have to relay truths? Is it okay to view photographs without any context and appreciate it for what it is? Bird researcher David Tan and art photographer and founder of the fictional Institute of Critical Zoologist Robert Zhao Renhui will discuss these topics and bring us through two very different sets of nature photographs with a critical eye, explore the different purposes of nature photography and how Nature photographs are conceptualized and taken.


Speakers: Mr David Tan, Mr Robert Zhao Renhui

Moderator: Mr Nicky Bay

Cantik Lah Singapore! A Dialogue Between Nature and Art is an event organized under the umbrella of ArteFact, a collective of scientists and artists who are dedicated to exploring new ways of communicating conservation science. 

Is Singapore divorced from Nature? Should we be proud of being a Garden City? How can art help save Nature? Reflect upon these issues and more through panel discussions and photography workshops that marry Nature with the visual arts.
