Bernice Wong (born 1988) is a documentary photographer based in Singapore. An avid traveler with a keen interest in social issues , she uses her work as visual stories to cast light on under-reported segments of the society, with particular attention to the fortitude and fragility of the human condition.
In 2014, she was awarded top prize for ‘Themed Body of Work’ as part of CDL Singapore Young Photographer Award. Bernice was also later invited to be part of PLATFORM’s TwentyFifteen.sg initiative which celebrates Singapore’s 50th anniversary, where she has since published her first photo book ‘School of Hard Knocks’. Of late, her work was selected to be part of the Asian Women Photographers’ Showcase hosted by Objectifs.
She was also selected to speak at TEDx Youth@Singapore about her work with ‘Beyond the Border: Behind the Men’, a local arts initiative she co-founded, which explores creative platforms through which to bring visibility to stories of Bangladeshi migrant workers in Singapore.
More recently, she dedicates her time working with and documenting the marginalized and underbelly of Singapore society.
