Following the successful Workshop Grant with the Singapore Heritage Society last year, Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) and Singapore Heritage Society are partnering again to offer a second grant to participate in the 12th Edition of the IPA Mentorship Program commencing in August 2016.
The IPA Mentorship Program is an intensive 3-month program by Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) for those who wish to further their personal photographic vision and goals. The aim is for mentees to conceive, continue or finish a photo project or series as a method to strengthen their photography and understand the concerns of their individual practice.
The IPA X SHS Photo Mentorship Grant recipient will be encouraged to investigate and interpret history (local or national, private or public), topography, community and locality to author creative site-responsive projects using photography as a medium.
Participants may choose to work on a place or neighbourhood in Singapore of personal significance, or a site of national heritage or historical interest. Research material, be they family or public archives, text, drawings and photographs, serve as raw ingredients to meditate and author the individual responses.
