“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.” 

Donn Tan Zheng Yu, Photographer
Donn Tan (b.1993) is a Singaporean Photographer who is currently an undergraduate at NTU's School of Art, Design and Media. The passion for his craft comes from his unyielding curiosity towards people and their interactions with all things (living and non-living), and how spaces and scenes reflect the emotions of the people involved in them. His work is inspired by his love for storytelling, as he believes that there will always be something special in places where people are not looking.

Donn was also selected to participate in mentorship programs such as Junior Shooting Home in 2012, Shooting Home and Noise TAP in 2015. He was awarded ‘Most Promising Photographer’ in Objectif’s Junior Shooting Home series, where ten young photographers were chosen to be mentored by industry heavyweights such as Jean Loo, Yian Huang, Deanna Ng, Joseph Nair and Chia Yan Wei. His work has also been a part of various group shows such as the aforementioned Junior Shooting Home, JSH Reunion Show, Noise Singapore's Pop Up Exhibition and Shooting Home.
