SIN: A Singapore Instagram Exhibition

It was back in December last year when I posted my first Instagram! What is an Instagram you ask? It is a photo you shoot with your iPhone and share via the Instagram app. It is sort of like Facebook for photos only, within your iPhone. You can follow other users and have followers within the Instagram community who can then like or comment on your photos. I became an IG (short for Instagram) addict and am known as an SGIGer (Singapore Instagramer) :D

The IG community grew rapidly and one SGIGer, @chairfreak together with @aikbengchia and @phonenomenon spearheaded a project to get an exhibition of Instagrams up this year and viola! Tonight is the opening of SIN: A Singapore Instagram Exhibition at the National Library :) SIN is an exhibition of Instagrams with “Singapore” as its theme. The exhibition is curated by Mr Goh Eck Kheng, Dr Tan Ngiap Heng (my shifu!) and Mr Chia Aik Beng (Singapore's most prolific iPhone photographer). It features Singaporeans, our way of life, Singapore architecture and of course our glorious food!

Out of the 8000+ submissions, a collection of 150 works that were photographed by the ubiquitous iPhone by everyday Singaporeans from professional photographers to full-time housewives were selected for the exhibition. I am proud to say that 3 of these Instagrams belonged to me @tubbykat :) 

If you have the time, do visit the SIN exhibition which runs from today till 30th October 2011. You will not be disappointed and perhaps even be surprised that all those photos were taken and edited with the humble iPhone!
