Tan Siok Siok
Filmmaker, award-winning TV producer, and now Beijing hutongs anthropologist, Tan Siok Siok's latest book People of Beijing features photos taken on her walk into work everyday between 2012 and 2016. Shot using only her iPhone, Siok's photography uses natural lighting and deep, dark shadows to expose the dynamic and bustling activities of people in the hutongs. On Sunday, Tan Siok Siok will be hosting a guided photo walk through Beijing's hutongs teaching participants how to capture the best photographs using their mobile phones. For budding photographers, this is a great opportunity to learn basic techniques (without all the expensive camera gear).
