Singapore-based Indonesian photographer Hendra Lauw opens his first one-man exhibition titled, "Human and Nature," on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at the OWG Art Gallery Cafe. Lauw showcases portraits and panoramic shots taken over the past two years in India, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.
Lauw shares that he experiences "a high personal satisfaction of being able to capture any element of life through my camera lenses, be it the beautiful natural landscape and portraits of local people in places I visited." Some of these places include the photographers' paradises of Bangalore, Ayuthaya and Central Java, as well as Boracay, Batanes and Pinatubo. "I like to share and convey the story behind the photos that I took." Photographs in " Human and Nature " indeed reveal a gift for visual story-telling, with portraits of monks, farmers and the elderly. Lauw's lush landscapes likewise have a tale to tell, with enigmatic centuries-old temples, bangka's by the beach in the sunrise and a clifftop silhouette against a purple dusk.
