Over Penang Photo Exhibition by David ST Loh
Over Penang + Beyond Photography Exhibition by David ST Loh July 1 – 31, 2019 11am till 8pm daily Fullerton Heritage Art Space @ East Garden, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore Over Penang + Beyond is the homecoming exhibition by David ST Loh, a Penangite who left the island 30 years ago and has since returned with a renewed perspective. He returned to Penang in November 2017 and has been exploring Penang and beyond the island, with a revived passion. This exhibition features aerial images of a vibrant, historical and fascinating Penang and areas beyond the island. Using a drone, David scours places that might hold interesting terrain, landmarks and features and he has not been disappointed with every deployment of the drone. Even as an aerial view, he has captured the multiracial society of Penang as evident in the images of the altar table on the eve of the Hokkien New Year, the devotees and offerings during Thaipusam, and the pilgrims at St Anne’s Church. David was formerly based in Singapore for over two decades, as a photojournalist and editor with Reuters Global Pictures desk in Science Park, and he has always viewed things with a keen eye for details and balance. As a photojournalist, he sees himself as a messenger who observe, captures and brings back engaging images to the public.
