About the Artist

Latana

Latana is an internationally renowned artist who has been active for the last 20 years. Born to a Puerto Rican mother and a father of Borneo origin, she has traveled, studied and exhibited in Switzerland, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, and the Pacific Rim. She began her career in fashion photography and has appeared in magazines; such as Harper’s, Vogue, and Details and continued to expand her craft while traveling the world, capturing images in India, Southeast Asia, China, Armenia, Siberia, and Africa. Latana has experimented with a wide range of media, including photography, sculpting, short film, poetry, and digital processes.

“My art stems more from an emotional response rather than a cerebral response.  I don’t interpret but rather bear witness to fragments of the world and its people.  In this way, I can give a voice to the unheard and a face to the unseen.”

She has previously authored two books; Fragments, a collection of images of an abandoned villa in Tuscany, Italy, and The Phukthar Monastery, which benefit children and monks of the monastery. Latana divides her time between Singapore, Europe and the United States, and continues to travel extensively.
