Having traversed South Korea, China, Sweden, the UK and Singapore, one would have amassed a rich experience of different cultures, landscapes and human emotions. There’s no better way to immortalise these storylines than through photos. Through an exhibition aptly entitled Ode to Life, budding photographer Helena Ma, managing director of a business consultancy firm who has worked in these five countries, gave an outlet to the human psyche. Her works zoom in on the details of everyday life and are flushed with hybrid photo-painting finish. This debut of Ma’s solo photography exhibition was hosted in conjunction with the launch of Podere LaPace wine at The Fullerton Heritage Gallery last December. With art collectors and key business leaders from Singapore and China as its guests, the exhibition raised funds for DEBRA, an international medical research charity for “butterfly children” suffering from a rare genetic condition that causes their extremely fragile skin to tear or blister at the slightest touch.
