Too good and rare a chance to pass this up.
John's been a true inspiration and influence for budding Singaporean photographers.
I wonder if we have a chance to meet the photographers he has mentioned, on the day of his exhibition? I think it will be eye opening and hopefully will have a chance to talk to John Clang and his hopefuls!
Hopefully, they will not be "DAO"!
never say never
As for being 'Daos', I do come across like that at times. I'm very passionate and when I give advise, I do come across very direct and honest. Only because I sincerely do care :-)
So, for the brave ones, if you feel like showing me some of your work on the 24th June,
you are welcome ;-)
It's a rare opportunity for me to meet you guys. I will cherish it.
As for rising star photographers, besides xuan I think Louis+Aida's work is also worth taking a look. They are more fashion and currently based in London.
good to see u really passionate about ur passion ... would definitely be around on your opening .. and yes singapore has a lot to offer ... heh heh just whether we are passionate enough to embrace it ... see u soon ...
upzz this thread. it is tomorrow. see you!

its like an entire installation piece!!!!
thanks for sharing your work in singapore, we are quite bless to have you in singapore again
here's some snapshots of the exhibition
the photographer reviewing works
Will you be there again today?
I came a lil too late and was told by the auntie that you just left.
i happened to read about you in ST today and did some internet search...
besides the last long running (heated) thread posted at Clubsnap about your last exhibition in Singapore, I found out that you have lost a lot of weight based on the video interviews at this web site here
you must have been very busy with your work in NY so it's nice you have made time to share your photos and art to inspire aspiring young photographers...
i'll try to visit your exhibit when i can...
all the best to your future
As for my weight....hahaha....I have been this skinny since 2002 or 2003.
It's not the last heated clubsnap discussion that gives me depression and hence drastic weight loss ;-)
I probably work too hard.
My personal thanks for the invitation to view your work at the substation exhibition. I did overhear at the exhibition that some did not understand the concept as well as what you were trying to show. I almost tried to explain to them but I also realised its wrong to tell them my own perception of your exhibition. They had to figure it out for themselves what JClang wanted to show as each see different things from your collection.
For me, I felt that this was a very intimate collection of images within a clinical environment. Shown in a large white album in an all white room without distraction without fuss. Yet for me, the album is an intimate way of experiencing your images. To me, the images were little windows to your world. To be enjoyed as one would in their privacy of their own home.
AND your interview in today's Straits Times clarified much of the process and the purpose of your photographs. My kudos to you for keeping honest to your own preferences and artistics strengths.
I certainly hope that you will continually return - regularly - to share with us your collections and series as you progress along your art.

I produce my images purely for myself and have always use them as a reflection of my life and my thoughts. They are very personal and it acts like my mental diary :-)
Thank you once more for viewing my work.
