Yeo Kwang Yeo, who has always had a deep passion for digital photography, quit his job a few years ago to pursue his hobby in picture-taking. In his winning shot, Yeo showcases an elderly man sitting in his house in a small village outside of Jakarta city. His image was unanimously voted as the strongest and most emotive submission out of more than 1,700 local entries by a panel of judges that include Mr Taisuke Nakanishi, Managing Director of Sony South East Asia and Astrid Merget, Creative Director of the World Photography Organisation (WPO).

“This image was chosen because it sent a powerful message about the love of a man for a place he calls home. Yeo’s panoramic shot was able to capture the little objects that he places at home and portrays how he lives his daily life – from watching shows on his little television set to having tea on his round table situated beside his kitchen.”  – Mr Taisuke Nakanishi, Managing Director of Sony South East Asia
