"City in Nature" Photography Exhibition - Students' Edition
A follow-up to last year’s “City in Nature” photography exhibition that featured the works of four professional photographers, this edition showcases forty works by aspiring youth photographers from secondary and tertiary education institutions across Singapore.
Through the lens of these young photographers, the rich biodiversity and lush urban greenery of Singapore are brought into focus. Each photo presents a youthful take on what it means for Singapore to be a City in Nature, and how nature is intertwined with the rhythm of our everyday lives.

Human; Nature (by One Dance Asia)
They once lived in harmony, both Man and the Earth. Nature provided for Man and Man relied solely on the Earth’s fruits to survive. Man did its part to till the earth and to harvest its growth. They were once complementary and they thrived.
Urbanisation in Singapore has posed many challenges to Nature due to limited land space. This performance by One Dance Asia presents the vital importance of Man’s respect and appreciation for the nature that surrounds us. Human; Nature promotes awareness, harmony and the beauty of Man's intrinsic relationship with Nature through the Arts.
“City in Nature” Photo Exhibition
This photo showcase featured snapshots of nature in our midst through different perspectives – from various vantage points, to close-ups and even astronomical imaging! These are the works of four Singaporean professional photographers Darren Soh, Gareth Phua, Yeo Wee Han and Charmaine Yap, whose images will give you a different dimension to Singapore, our City in Nature.
