I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive.

I have a self-proclaimed weakness for fame and ambition. I possess exhibitionist tendencies, love to sing Thom, Buckley, Martin and Mayer to myself along the tune of my pathetic $200 Fina acoustic. My favourite subjects are closely intertwined with Le Femme Fatale, legs and classic facial expressions (if I come by lucky). I am the feeble literary author, whose pen is guided by Williams, Capote and many other Southern gay authors. I am outwardly the trippin' swinging bachelor, inwardly yearning, almost thirsting for a partner. I have no shame, no etiquette, no manners when I need to shoot what I need to shoot.

Hello stranger. My name's Ivan.

What's yours?

My short film 'Long Ride Home' is in the running for the best film award in a little competition I submitted for. My team and I are trying to raise funds for our thesis film through this. If you have 2 minutes to spare, you could just drop me a vote here. Thank you so much!

"When we set up Platform, one of the missions we set for ourselves was to go out and find new talents, and more specifically, ‘young’ Singaporeans who demonstrate a desire to devote their time and effort to further documentary photography in this tiny island.

Last October, we launched Platform Ten, an initiative to identify and recognize 10 new faces whom we, the panel of nominators, believe, will make a difference in the area of Documentary Photography and Photojournalism, in the years to come."


I was recently nominated as one of the ten photographers featured in Platform Ten. Every year, a collective of local documentary photographers come together to nominate ten new photographers to look out for. I remembered when I first saw the page for last year's Platform Ten, I was telling myself that it would take some more time before I made it there.

When Justin emailed me one day and asked to meet me, I wasn't expecting anything apart from having a conversation with someone who liked my work. Little did I know that the meeting was intended to get to know me better and understand my chances for qualifying as a nominee. I was extremely honored yet delighted at the same time. 

This experience has humbled me, and gave me a good nudge to continue doing work that I so love. I do not profess to be a documentary photographer, nor am I some art photographer. I am simply, seeking to say what I need to say.
