About the photographer: Shannon Heng

  • "As a photographer, I have been fascinated by the beauty of miniature orchids, which have generally received little attention given their size, and are often overshadowed by larger, more showy flowers.

    My challenge for this exhibition was to capture portraits of these tiny beauties to bring awareness and appreciation of miniature orchids to a wider audience."

  • Growing up in Singapore with abundant exposure to the rich botanical world, Shannon brings his appreciation of flora to developing a unique style of Botanical Portraiture. His inspirations are drawn from lines, textures, colours and form to capture the essence of each subject he photographs.


    He currently splits his time between Singapore and India, where he is a SIGMA Regional Ambassador for India and a Senior Advisor with DCP Expeditions in Mumbai.
