Pearl Gan

Pearl Gan is a Singaporean photographer. She completed her postgraduate studies at Murdoch University in Australia. Her photographs are mainly documentary and portraiture style. Pearl based her photographic art on her eye for composition and what she sees in her daily life both at home and abroad. She enjoys travelling and talking to the communities she photographs; learning about their culture and listening to their stories.

One of her photographs won the third prize in the “Care Together” category in the Swiss Malaria Photography Contest in April 2017 and was exhibited in Geneva, Switzerland.

Her article “Picturing Health : Making Malaria Visible in the Asia Pacific” was also published in The Lancet in February 2017 along with a ten-page photo spread. This achievement had to raise the awareness for her humanitarian project on malaria successfully.
