Side Street Stories: Singapore (An e-Zine)

“Side Street Stories: Singapore” is not just a photography series; it’s a love letter to the country that captured my heart. My relationship with Singapore began as an occasional layover destination, which eventually became my country of residence when I was offered a chance to pursue my PhD research here. This opportunity, once beyond the realm of my wildest dreams, allowed me to see Singapore in a light vastly different from the usual images tourists would see.

Through both my smartphone and camera lenses, I aim to peel back the layers of this futuristic and modern city-state, revealing the rich tapestry of cultures that make Singapore one of the most diverse countries in the world. This series is a testament to my fascination with its hidden corners and unassuming streets, places where the real heartbeat of the country can be felt.

Each photograph in this collection is a story, a moment in time captured, reflecting the everyday life of the island’s many neighborhoods. From the vibrant celebrations of public holidays to the quiet, everyday moments of its residents, these images are my way of showing the world that Singapore is more than just a skyline of superlatives—it’s a melting pot of stories waiting to be told.

As I continue to explore and photograph, my connection with Singapore deepens, and with every shutter click, I find a new chapter of Singapore’s story to share. This series is not just about capturing images; it’s about capturing emotions, stories, and the essence of what makes Singapore uniquely beautiful.
