"Growing Up During a Pandemic" Live Stream
Brian Teo is the youngest photographer that the National Museum commissioned to document the Singapore’s COVID-19 experience. Through his lens, we see how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected people on different levels, from communities such as the schools in Singapore — including his alma maters — to individuals such as his then 10-year-old god sister — Tay Kailin — who had to grapple with Home-based Learning, and even himself. In this livestream programme, Brian recounts his experiences and approach to capturing our daily lives during these unique times.
