Lives and Works: Singapore
Born in Singapore in 1990, Phyllicia started photography at the age of 17, she has constantly been influenced by works seen in commercial photography and photojournalism. She began with her photography as a form of escapade and treated it as a tool to present reality. In 2012, however, her works saw a gradual shift in its approach. She has recently been captivated in creating contemporary modern landscape with works that involves a mix of photography and digital manipulations. As of now, she uses photography as a mirror to convey the outside, which she sees as equivalent to the inside - her environment mirroring her inner emotions. She works around the idea of equivalence in photography as termed by Alfred Stieglitz whose works can move beyond transcription without abandoning verisimilitude. This is her ultimate aspiration. Phyllicia received a Bachelor in Photography and Digital Imaging from NTU Arts, Design & Media School in 2014.
