SYPA Themed Body of Work 2014 +

Last night I was named the winner in this year’s Singapore Young Photographer Award’s “Themed Body of Work” category, for my work on Lim Chu Kang Jetty. 

 It was something I worked on rather diligently for a couple of months in 2013. I haven’t gone back to photograph that place as much as I would like to this year, but that is in the pipeline. 

 In fact, I started visiting the jetty in Jan ‘13 (that was way before I decided to document it proper in May) just to look-see i.e. kaypoh a bit, and I forgot that I made some images in the four trips there. Today, I revisited the stuff I shot back then, and it brought back a lot of memories.

In addition to the above announcement, I’m happy to share that I’ve been invited to contribute to Twentyfifteen’s series of 20 books. Twentyfifteen, an initiative of Platform, will see twenty photographers publish books related to/about Singapore, as we celebrate Singapore’s 50th year of independence in 2015.
