Spotted! Gabe Chen

20-year-old Gabe Chen originally entered Temasek Polytechnic as a Visual Communication major, but discovered a passion for fashion photography during his final year project.

“I started photography in 2007 as a street photographer, and some of my work can be viewed at online gallery Vue Privee,” says Gabe. “Though I shoot fashion these days, I try not to limit myself to just fashion. I still love capturing street and lifestyle, occasionally shooting for online magazine Poskod.sg. I have also shot two campaigns and lookbooks for local label Yumumu. My style of photography is a tad dramatic and if shot in landscape, often quite cinematic, balanced out with contrastingly soft colours. Technically, I try to replicate film as best as I can. If there’s one thing I ultimately strive to achieve in most of my photographs it is elegance; photographs aren’t just capturing a place or subject, it’s a living canvas filled with many prospects of capturing beauty and emotions.”
