Tan Chuan-Jin is an avid photographer himself and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity through an exhibition of his photographs, last year.

Chuan-Jin’s exhibition, entitled ‘Our Place In The World,’ was part of Singapore’s bicentennial celebrations. Showing pictures taken by the ruling party politician in 20 countries over the last two decades, the exhibition raised funds for 13 charities, including Care Corner Singapore, Centre for Fathering, HealthServe and The Turning Point, and The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.
