SING SHOTS ] Silverlens hosts Singapore photo festival in Manila


On December 11 to January 9, select works from the Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) 2008 will travel to Manila for a month long exhibition.

SIPF satellite partner, Silverlens Gallery, hosts the visual feast for the Filipino community, providing extended exposure for the select SIPF 2008 photographers.

The SIPF is a biennial gathering of minds from around the world with the common pursuit of advancing the art and appreciation of photography. The 2008 SIPF hosted juried exhibitions, workshops, and portfolio reviews. Isa Lorenzo, Silverlens Creative Director was one of the panelists of SIPF 2008, participating in the portfolio critiques, as well as giving a talk on Collecting Photography.


“This exhibition at Silverlens is a selection of work from the juried shows. We are happy to be part of this network that shows interesting and powerful photography”, Lorenzo says. On a broader scale, SIPF presents a key platform to discover, nurture and propel Southeast Asian photographers onto the international stage.

“Among the many objects that surround us, a small photograph could be the most amazing object. It carries you away, it touches you, teleporting you in time, through memory and imagination,” says Terence Yeung, Curator of SIPF 2008.


The SIPF exhibition at Silverlens Gallery opens on Friday, December 11, and runs until Saturday, January 9. For more information and inquiries, please contact 816-0044_, or visit the gallery’s website at /
