Deanna is an independent photographer and educator.
In 2006, Deanna was selected as an International Participant for the Missouri Photo Workshop. The experience taught her the importance of the photograph as a document of history. She takes a contemporary approach to her documentary work. Through photography, she hopes to learn about the world around her.
She was one of the artists for the inaugural Icon de Martell Cordon Bleu Photographer of the Year Award in 2010. Deanna was selected as one of Asian's emerging talents and profiled on Nikon's "Through Asian Eyes" in 2011.
In 2015, she is selected as one of the 60 Singapore contemporary artists in the book "Singapore Eye - Contemporary Singapore Art". She has completed her first public commission for LTA's Arts In Transit programme on the the Thomson Line. The station will be ready in 2021.
I'm drawn to spaces that are forgotten. Little pockets of green spaces in the urban city. Beauty is found in our own backyard.
Photography is a practice that trains us to be still and observe. I revisit my favourite spaces often. Translating the scene before me into an image takes time as i try to express what I see in front of me to how I feel about it.
Contemporary, quiet, reflective.
