S’porean photographer captures image of aeroplane on Chan Chun Sing’s forehead in parliament

Posted on 31 January 2016

Mastery of camera and skillful serendipitous shot lauded by international photography luminaries.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can point a camera at any object and click away furiously because they don’t use film which is expensive and digital is so cheap, have come out to praise a fellow local photographer.

This after the local photographer took a photo of an aeroplane flying past Minister Chan Chun Sing’s forehead by chance.

Pai Chao, the local photographer, said: “I chanced upon a set of MPs in parliament while on a photowalk with my friends in Boat Quay, and thought the view ahead would make an interesting perspective.”

“Little did I expect to catch an airplane in mid-air on Chan Chun Sing’s forehead.”

His photograph has since won many international awards around the world and has been lauded by photography luminaries.

It is also in the running for winning a prestigious Nikon trolley bag.

However, many Singaporeans interviewed have also expressed concern regarding the authenticity of the photo.

One local, Zhen De Ma, explained: “This photo looks highly suspicious and photoshopped.”

“Since when did MPs in the background not fall asleep? Have their opened eyes been photoshopped into the image?”

“Shouldn’t they be dozing off?”
