Ms LEE Ju Shen, the Asia Jury Prize Winner of the ASEF Photo Competition “On the Go”, now lives in Singapore after many years of travelling, studying and working around the world. The wealth and diversity of her life experiences, together with her Bachelor’s Degree in Geography, Geology and Environmental Science, have given her a nuanced holistic eye for photography. Her photographs seek to combine people, their unique cultures and beautiful native landscapes in one image. The split-second to find, combine and balance these 3 key elements into one timeless photograph, is the challenge that excites her about photography. Sharing her photographs to open the eyes, hearts and minds of others is what fuels her passion for photography.
On being selected as the Asia Jury Prize Winner Ju Shen said: “I am delighted and very proud to have been selected as the Asia Jury Prize winner for ASEF’s On the Go Photo Competition. Photography has always been a visual bridge between the subject and the beholder. With this unique, global photo competition, ASEF has taken photography further and made it a cultural bridge between Asia and Europe as well.”
