About Deanna 

Deanna Ng is an independent photographer and educator.

In 2006, Deanna was selected as an International Participant for the Missouri Photo Workshop. The experience taught her the importance of the photograph as a document of history.

Deanna was selected as one of Asian's emerging talents and profiled on Nikon's "Through Asian Eyes" in 2011.

Her work includes Life Before Death, a commission by the Lien Foundation which resulted in a solo exhibition at the Month of Photography (Asia) 2009. She has also worked with German Development Agency, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), to document 20 Women in Micro-financing in Indonesia. Her pictures have been published in a book, titled Leaders, Lenders & Breadearners.
