Shaped by different experiences and beliefs, individuals in the community hold varying views and attitudes towards disabilities and inclusion. With the help of avid photographers, we bring you moments of inclusion that were captured from different corners of our island, showing people with disabilities as part of this community.
The photo exhibitions are part of SPD’s Breaking Barriers campaign organised to increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disabilities, and promoting inclusion in Singapore. Showcasing winning photographs from the SPD “Let’s Focus on Inclusion!” Photography Contest, the exhibitions will rove to different parts of Singapore – at designated public libraries, SPD Ability Centre, Community Clubs and Courts Megastore Tampines – till 17 April 2017.

Chua Meng Hong, winner of Open Category shares with us his thoughts behind this great shot he took - “as long as you enjoy doing something, it doesn’t make a difference if you are disabled”. An avid swimmer himself, he was inspired by how fit the athletes at the ASEAN Para Games were.
“Together We Can Do It!” This is the Facebook category first prize winning photo by Mr Adrian Lam.
