Who Soh picked up the camera at 14, then worked as a freelancer while completing his degree – he only become a full-time photographer in 2001. He’s best known for his architectural shots and for chronicling the lesser-seen aspects of Singapore’s cityscape (sorry, Marina Bay Sands and Merlions) in images.
This is his favourite shot because... ‘I think one of the greatest accomplishments that any photographer can have is for his or her work to reach out to people and touch them. My lightning image (pictured above), which recently went viral, is the perfect example of this. I never knew people would react in such a vast number of ways to a photo. And that’s quite humbling.’
