Photography is a passion. My work focuses mainly on health stories in Asia Pacific. Over the years, I was involved in medical projects in malaria,leprosy,dengue and tuberculosis. I volunteered in medical projects and helped the doctors and hospitals to take photographs of diseases, communities, healthcare workers; mainly patients of infectious diseases.

Through my lens, I hope to highlight the importance of public health and the work of caregivers, health workers and community education in creating awareness for outback communities in Asia Pacific.

My name is Pearl Gan.

I am a photographer based in Singapore. Over the years, I have been volunteering in medical projects on infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and dengue and with other non-profit organisations.

My passion is to help the less advantages people and assist in highlighting medical issues in the impoverished and less advantaged communities. Using photography as a medium, I hope that my work provides the bridge between science and art ; bridging cultures and communities.
