Hello, I’m Rebecca Toh.

I am a photographer whose day job is working around the world shooting for clients such as Facebook, Monocle, Condé Nast Traveler, The New York Times, etc.

This is my website that collects some of my thoughts/writing about life, work and a few things in between.

Thank you for visiting me in this dusty, far-flung corner of the internet!
