About the photographer:
Alvan Yap spent one year in Timor Leste under the Singapore International Foundation's overseas volunteer programme. Attached to the Agape School for the Deaf in the capital, Dili, he helped to develop a curriculum and a standardised sign language system.
Hearing-impaired himself, Alvan has a diploma in special education and had taught at the Singapore School for the Deaf for four years. He now works as an editor and writer with a local publishing company. Alvan took up photography as a hobby nine years ago; he stuck with a point-and-shoot camera for five years before he deemed himself worthy of a DSLR. These days, he makes pictures with prime lenses, available light and a whole lot of serendipity.
Good photography knows no boundaries.

Montage 2012 returns for its 14th year as the NUSPS flagship event with a brand new theme -- No Boundaries! This year, we aim to inspire breakthroughs in photography through an exciting series of competition, workshops and seminar events.
Photographs have the ability to transcend boundaries, cultures and touch our hearts in different ways. Through exploration of the theme "No Boundaries”, we hope to show that photography is not limited to our own imposed limitations.
We now welcome you to come forward with photo entries that best capture the essence of "No Boundaries" for the Montage 2012 Photography Competition! You can choose to take part in the Individual Photos category (Youth or Open sub-categories), or the Photo Story (Youth) Category.
