1stBursting Light

Leo John Justice
Dulwich College in Singapore
Year 4

I was at the Botanic Gardens in Singapore, and I saw a nice light coming through the branches of the trees with mist from a flower spray and colours combined together and I was desperate to take a photo of it. I loved how it came out, how you can vividly see through the flowers but there are also dark shadowy bits too. I also like how the light has been split up like fingers.

Photograph was taken at Hong Village, Zhejiang. Market at countryside is quite different from supermarkets in our city, it is much closer to the nature. On November, the latest batch of winter bamboo shoots(a kind of traditional Chinese food) were grabbed from mountains around Hong Village and sold at this market.

Faculty

This is "The Land of the Lost Horizon" a part of Western China with jaw-dropping landscapes and a proud recognition of its local ethnic minority group, the Naxi people. Traditional Naxi horsemen are bidding us farewell in this photo, accompanied with a local song willing us to return.

2ndThe barber shop

Rachel Garrick
Dulwich College in Singapore
Faculty

Yangon's streets are full of energy and vibrance. This barbershop is what I think of as an inside/outside set up, where having a haircut or a shave is a very public affair.

With Winter Approaching, the world freezes and stalactites are formed. The golden rays of sunlight reflect of the ice making a beautiful image for the Camera to capture. Beauty and light can be found even in the darkest of places. Nikon D7000 f5.6 ISO400 1/1000 150mm

2ndRipple in Water

Max James Marek Hamilton
Dulwich College
Year 10

I was fascinated by the movement of the ripples in water and the metaphorical connection they have with us as humans. They start at one point and ripple out circles from their origin – each ripple a memory that slowly fades as it gets further from its origin – similar to our own memories.

3rdVelocity of City

ZHENG HUANG
Dulwich International High School Zhuhai
Year 12

Everything has velocity. The speed of making money makes us rich or poor, the speed of sound makes echoes, the speed of light makes us can only see each other in the past. 6 seconds of time squeezed in a single frame. That is how fast those car travels and how fast the city grows.

Rachel Dee Halliday
Dulwich College in Singapore

I captured this particular shot after hiking up a hill as it really felt as though Orion had joined me on my trek. It seemed that Orion was so tired from hiking all the way up the hill, that he had decided to lie down on a bed of trees at the top. Taken in Indonesia.

2ndThree Seconds of Impatience

Ioan Mihnea Lupu
Dulwich College Suzhou
Year 13

This is a very important photo for me. This was taken during my first attempt at using a telephoto lens. I was alone by the side of the lake late at night and wanted to attempt a self portrait. I ended up having the photo expose for 3 seconds roughly, and using off camera flashes to expose myself. I planned to move half way through the exposure to create a phase in/phase out effect. Admittedly, the phase effect isn't as prominent, but I am happy with how it turned out considered I was guessing the focus as I couldn't have anyone help me and I had no remote to let the camera autofocus on me. At the same time I was estimating the timings and hoping my framing was correct. I think this speaks to both man and the environment as well as waiting as it comments on how we as society have an attention span that is only a few milliseconds. Now, memes and societal norms come and go so fast. Everything is relevant and at the same time nothing is relevant and I wanted to highlight how even the most permanent of things are never really appreciated.

This photo was taken walking home from school one evening. The sky was tinged yellow with the promise of an electrical storm. Minutes after taking this photo, the sky cracked open with thunder and lightning and the cars raced away.
