Directed by Shirley Han Ying, this series of seven videos reveal the stories behind each finalist of the WYNG MASTERS AWARD (WMA) 2012. In the fifth video, Singaporean photographer, Wei Leng Tay talks about the changing district of North Point illustrated through the lives of local inhabitants. Her series - 'North Point' - was selected as one of the seven finalists of the WMA 2012.

Wei Leng Tay's approach examines how people’s relationships, priorities, and ways of life are shaped by the socio-political landscape of the places they live in. She has held exhibitions in Japan, Indonesia, Singapore and Bangkok. Her work is collected by museums such as the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts, Japan, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum.

Over the last decade, Hong Kong’s rapidly widening wealth gap has resulted in an economically unbalanced and socially unequal city. The high level of economic disparity outstrips that of other eminent world cities. Amidst great affluence, 18.1% of Hong Kong’s population lives at subsistence levels. Failure of policy leaves many struggling to achieve a living wage and to maintain their dignity.

The WYNG MASTERS AWARD (WMA) for Photography is a non-profit project initiated to spark public awareness and to support interest in socially relevant issues of great importance to Hong Kong and its people. WMA’s mission is to stimulate discussion and to encourage the development of social responsibility in Hong Kong by employing the medium of PHOTOGRAPHY to explore these subjects. WMA’s theme for 2012 is Poverty.
