After a month-long mentorship program in Dec 2021, 13 young photographers have prepared a visual interpretation of their idea of ‘home’.

The photos are part of an exhibition held at Objectifs for the Shooting Home Youth Awards (SHYA) programme, from Feb 9 to Mar 6.

After being selected through an open call, the participants were then mentored by industry professionals Ng Hui Hsien, Juria Toramae, Lenne Chai and Marvin Tang.
