Lavender Chang

 

(b. 1983, lives and works in Singapore) Lavender Chang's focus lies in conceptual photography. Lavender’s artwork is a reflection of the sensitivity towards the subtle nuances surrounding her.

In 2017, she has exhibitions at The Arts House in Singapore and Gajah Gallery in Yogyakarta.
