Exhibition: Children of Mekong

Children of Mekong is a touching photography exhibition highlighting the water and sanitation issues in rural Asia through the lens of award-winning female photographer Jean Qingwen Loo. From the floating communities in Cambodia to Vietnamʼs rice fields and Chinaʼs mountain villages, the exhibition hopes to create conversation about life in the less developed parts of Asia.

The photos were commissioned by Lien Aid, a Singapore-based NGO that seeks to build a firm foundation for human development by making safe water and sanitation accessible and affordable to poor communities in Asia.

About the artist: Jean Qingwen Loo is a documentary photographer with a keen interest in social issues in Asia. She has exhibited at seven group shows and represented Singapore as a photojournalist at the ASEAN Youth Camp. Her works were exhibited during the 2009 Month of Photography Asia’s Out of Focus show. Jean also co-authored and photographed “Changing Phases”, a book on children growing up in modern Southeast Asia. In 2009, she was awarded five honourable mentions in the International Photography Awards and featured in the PDN Photo Annual. Jean was also selected for the prestigious Eddie Adams workshop in New York City.

The exhibition opens on 19 November and runs through 3 December at Objectifs Gallery.
