One thought on “Close Up: Photographer Wong Maye-E

  1. What an eye. What a hand. What a view of the world!

    I’m curious: Is Wong Maye-E a Singapore native?

    When I was at AP in the ’70s and ’80s, Singapore had a one-man bureau – one correspondent using freelance shooters. It seems to be a bigger bureau now.
