What makes a photographer tick? Do “the perfect shot” or “the decisive moment” exist? In Image Makers, we uncover the processes and motivations behind internationally renowned photographers from Singapore. Through interviews and reviews of their works, we attempt to get to the heart of the work and their approach to art creation. The series of short documentary films features the following photographers: John Clang (dir. Kirsten Tan), Darren Soh (dir. Chai Yee Wei), Chow Chee Yong (dir. Pok Yue Weng), Robert Zhao Renhui (dir. by Jow Zhi Wei), Ho Hui May (dir. by Liao Jiekai), Tay Kay Chin (dir. by Wong Chen-Hsi) and Russel Wong (dir. by Jean Qingwen Loo).

Who Is Giorgio de Chirico?

Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
