Oowen is a landscape photographer based in Singapore. He was a multimedia designer turned educator and has worked as a landscape and travel photographer in the UK for two years. With 10 years of experience with camera works, Oowen has acquired a wide-ranging experience, attention to detail and knowledge of creative photographic techniques. His creative output also includes other areas of the multimedia aspect such as videography, graphic design and fine art printing, which enables him to have a multidisciplinary perspective to inform his creative endeavors. Oowen graduated with BA (Hons) Photography, Honours First Class from Norwich University of the Arts, UK and has received the vice-chancellors recommendation.
Oowen’s photographic practice largely explores the concept of “The Provocative Landscape”. For the past two years, he has been exploring cities and landscapes through the tourist’s eyes, examining the manipulation of its effects and the limitation of the spectacle based on our own interpretation of what the landscape mean to us as the visitor and how it provokes a reaction from the personal perspective. This personal endeavor is still an on-going project.
