- About the Authors
They are often mere statistics these days – the growing ranks of the elderly, whose care will be borne by ever fewer caregivers. But dive deeper into the people themselves and myriad stories emerge. Dreams, memories, fears, friendship, love, and loss...
In Who Cares?, photographer Kelvin Lim uses his remarkable visual storytelling abilities to explore the world of these old men and women, and the larger questions of an ageing population.
The book also documents the responses of 70 viewers from all walks of life. Their opinions, recollections and musings triggered by the photos offer us a fascinating, multifaceted look at ageing, identity, and the challenges facing caregiving in Singapore.
Exactly Foundation is a not-for-profit, trademarked registered label established by Li Li Chung to commission photographers to create works that stimulate discussion of social concerns in Singapore. Its goal is to produce new knowledge by having viewers engage with the photographs and share them with friends and family over a 2-3 month period.
Kelvin Lim, a commercial photographer, won the Best Portrait Photography award (Singapore Tatler) in 2016. He has exhibited solo at Portraits of Love by the Home Nursing Foundation. Kelvin is a consummate storyteller who uses photography, writing, and art to reveal his subjects’ inner beauty. “It doesn’t matter if we’re pretty or ugly, rich or poor, famous or misunderstood. Beneath what everyone sees on the outside, there is something within us that is human and real. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, and everyone has a story to tell. This is the inspiration behind my work.”
