The speakers


Born 1966, Mathias Heng grew up in Singapore and graduated from Boys Town Vocational Institute where he studied Graphics reproduction. Images from humanity issues had a powerful effect on him, and for that reason influenced his decision to become a photographer. He now resides in Australia, spending much of his time travelling on assignments to places of war, disaster, poverty and human struggle. Mathias has photographed several conflicts and their effects on the civilian population, producing a body of emotionally moving documentary work that captures key moments and turning points in history.
