Charlene is a photographer, media producer, writer, editor, humanitarian and a raft of other things in-between / around. Born and bred in Singapore, she has spent over two decades working and travelling as a photographer in Australia, Europe and North America. Prior to returning to Singapore in 2020, Charlene worked with refugees and internally displaced people in northern Iraq for a US aid organisation. She is passionate about community, and in her work as a producer and editor, has championed important social issues, supporting practitioners in the field to tell stories of those most in need, as well as those making an impact.
Charlene and photographer Marie Dailey started Women In Street Singapore (IG / FB), a community of women street photographers in (you guessed it!) Singapore, in 2020.
Charlene and Australian poet Eileen Chong published Map-Making, a collaborative book of poetry and photography, in 2018.
Charlene has been a Fujifilm X Series ambassador since 2014, and uses Fujifilm equipment for both stills and video work.
