About / Contact


"Driven by an unwavering passion for humanity's journey of self-discovery and the enigmatic realms of spirituality, I have spent the past six years immersed in the ebb and flow of daily life. This profound exploration has brought me face-to-face with diverse worlds, from the mystical Hindu Aghoris at the pyres of Varanasi to unraveling ancient legends of gods and men, all within the context of the modern world.

As a photographic artist, I employ the medium of photography to interweave the threads of antiquity and modernity. Through meticulous hand-manipulation of photographic prints and the fusion of mythical narratives, I embark on imaginative, non-linear storytelling that transcends the constraints of time. The resulting images are imbued with an aura of intimacy and mystery, inviting viewers to contemplate the intricate relationships between humankind, the natural world, and the fluidity of time."

Alvin Ng, a Southeast Asian photographic artist currently based in Singapore, formally channels these creative expressions. His works embody the merging of past and present, utilizing hand-manipulated prints to delve into the rich tapestry of Humanity's mythic heritage. With an aim to evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity, Alvin's art invites viewers on a journey that transcends temporal boundaries.
