Founded in 2010, PLATFORM is a photography collective promoting photojournalism and documentary work in Singapore through talks, panels and presentations at Sinema and the National Museum of Singapore, among other international venues. The TwentyFifteen.sg book publishing initiative by PLATFORM was started with limited funding but over the years grew into profitable publishing enabling other creative outlets for diverse range of photography based projects. The individual visions and voices of this small group of volunteers have been incredibly nurturing and creative. In this talk, TAY Kay Chin – co-founder of PLATFORM, co-creator of the TwentyFifteen.sg and +50 projects, and curator of Pera Museum’s Singapore Unseen exhibition – will share the nuts and bolts behind these impressive initiatives.

TAY Kay Chin is a co-founder of PLATFORM and TwentyFifteen.sg. A vocal advocate of photography in Singapore, he spent more than a decade in newspapers in Singapore and the US, working his way up from photographer to presentation editor. In 2003, Kay Chin was named one of 12 Hasselblad Masters of the world. He anchored the photojournalism programme at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University from 2009 to 2015. Besides commercial and personal projects, he devotes his time to promoting photography, writing, consulting and lecturing.

Free admissions, drop in. This event will take place in the auditorium. The talk will be in English with simultaneous Turkish translation.
