BECAUSE ART IS LONG & LIFE IS SHORT
BY PAMELA HO
“Aerial landscapes tell a different story from what we see and understand on the ground. Drone photography has certainly pushed me to see life from yet another perspective,” says photographer Wayne Toh, who picked up aerial photography in late 2015. “Some buildings that seem ordinary can look very interesting from the sky. Then there are those that look fascinating from all perspectives – the ArtScience Museum is one of them.”
Toh currently runs photography enrichment programmes for schools and is based at Nanyang Primary School as an artist-in-residence. “As a child, I dreamt of being an architect as I was always fascinated by buildings’ structure and design. Owning a drone now allows me to admire architecture from a fresh point of view,” he says, adding that one needs to apply for relevant permits from the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to operate drones in Singapore.
