Wild and Free – Wildlife Photography Exhibition

29 July to 6 August 2017

In her lifetime, award-winning wildlife photographer Silvana Sutanto sought to give voice to the silent and silenced – animals whose habitats are being threatened by humanity’s encroachment. To raise awareness, she would travel to far-flung remote regions, forging through rough terrain and waiting for hours under often-harsh conditions to capture the perfect shot. In tribute to her memory, the Silvana S. Foundation will be putting up an exhibition cum sale of 15 of her works. In addition, fine Jewelery boutique Loang & Noi has exclusively designed a series of zebra pendant brooches to accompany her captivating images. Profits from the show will benefit Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary (NANAS).


著名野生动物摄影师 Silvana Sutanto 一生为了保护即将灭绝的濒危野生动物,而打造出生动的相片作品。 透过Silvana的作品来叙述动物们之间互动,不但能更深一层的了解人类与动物的相同之处,也反映出人类社会逐渐忽略的价值观。 此展览称 《Wild and Free》的15作作品与珠宝精品店 Loang & Noi 所精心设计的斑马线胸针将在展览中售卖。 利润将捐赠给动物保护机构Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary (NANAS). 如此充满意义的展览,欢迎观众前来参观。

The Indonesia-born Silvana first picked up photography in 2002 as a hobby. As she discovered her voice through the medium and joy in conveying stories through images, she set on a dedicated path to deepen her practice. In 2006, she joined the Photographic Society of Singapore, while polishing her proficiency under a Hong Kong-based Pictorial Art Master.For Silvana, the natural world held a mirror to human interactions. Among the wild creatures, she saw and was touched by instances of family bonding, love and friendship which she felt were often neglected in a society caught in the bustle of contemporary living.

With her keen eye, she sought to bridge different worlds through photography. Her ethos of creating common ground between people and other living things is evident with how her images transport viewers from our manufactured society to a realm that echos with nature’s urgent whispers.

Silvana’s works have been included in several international shows and recognised with numerous awards. Among them are the Gold Medal at the Royal Photographic Society Gold Medal Exhibitors’ Association International Salon and Image of the Year Honor Award by the Photography Society of America, both in 2011.
