Geraldine Kang is a 23-year-old Singaporean photographer. She is currently pursuing a degree in photography at the School of Art, Design and Media, NTU, Singapore. Her photographic interests focus largely on the correlation between people, their domestic environments and individual identities. This series, In the Raw,’proposes a way of using the body as a metaphor for issues concerning human nature and family bonds. It also deals with the involvement of my family in an image-making practice that is commonly frowned upon within Singapore. The work comprises staged fictional episodes loosely based on memories that I share with both immediate and extended family. I seek to elucidate matters of tension that are not frequently discussed, or considered taboo among the family in general. These include challenging the physical and emotional boundaries between family in close proximity, death, as well as a reflection on parent-child and inter-generational relationships’.
