About Charlene

I am a photographer and a nomad. Straddling ethnicities, nations and cultures without ever fully inhabiting a side, I am a permanent in-betweener. Like generations of my family, I too left my place of birth to live elsewhere: from Singapore to Australia, to a 6 year stint on the road. In 2019, I moved to northern Iraq (Kurdistan) for work.

In recent years, regular returns to Singapore have offered a new lens to explore this life of perpetual transit: the challenge of finding home, and the meaning of belonging.

I am proud to be a Fujifilm X-series ambassador, and use Fujifilm equipment for both stills and video work. I am also sponsored by Goecker, Swedish Chameleon, Simplr Straps.
