In Singapore, it is a common practice for entire families to gather on special occasions for a formal picture, often at a studio, with the resulting image framed and prominently displayed at home. The growing tendency of younger family members to take jobs abroad, however, has left many modern portraits missing a relation or two. So the Singaporean photographer John Clang devised a solution, piggybacking on the video-calling technology that already helps ease the dislocation of separated family members: Skype.

Picture perfect portrait of how technology can bring us together, when we’re so far apart.

Technology bridges the gap.

“If you really want to touch someone, send them a letter,” a handwritten letter that is. Australia Post delivers with a touching ad campaign encouraging citizens to send a letter. These clever print advertisements were developed at M&C Saatchi, Melbourne, by creative director Steve Crawford, head of art Murray Bransgrove, art director Rebecca Hannah and copywriter Doogie Chapman, with photographer Christopher Tovo and retoucher Ed Croll.
