Ore Huiying is a photographer from Singapore. Her practice revolves around storytelling, which she believes is basic to human beings. She grew up in rural Singapore, but was uprooted to an urban environment as the country develops. As a result, she is drawn to narratives of people and places affected by development.

In 2010 Ore moved to London to study an MA in Documentary Photography at LCC. After 4 years of studying and living in London, she returned to Singapore to focus her photographic practice on Southeast Asia. She has since been working on personal projects, as well as taking on commissioned work for international publications like Bloomberg, Le Monde newspaper, M magazine and Getty Images. Her photographic works have been exhibited in photo festivals, museums and galleries.

In 2013, she was nominated for ICON de Martell Cordon Bleu, a photography award in Singapore that honour photographers’ original vision and dedication to their craft.

In 2018, she won the top honours of the Invisible Photographer Award for her documentary project and was selected for the World Press Photo 6×6 Global Talent Program in the same year.

In 2020, she received a National Geographic Explorer Grant to continue her investigations of the impact of dam building along the Mekong River.
