SHAWN BYRON DANKER
I am a Singapore-based photographer who has been shooting professionally since 2006. For me, the cityscape is a physical manifestation of the very human tension between what is and what ought to be, and also the moral tension between what merely appears to be and what is unspoken. This constant double tension infuses my photography, which both celebrates and rehabilitates the contemporary spaces and humans in their urban habitat. I like to challenge myself to create and recreate this double vision in each new series I embark upon, to help audiences become aware of the natural, the undiscussed, the undisputed, the implicit – and to ultimately reflect and question them. My photographs have been showcased in publications in Bangladesh, France, Japan, the Philippines, and Singapore. I have also held two exhibitions in Singapore.
