Interviews and Publications


I’m honored to have Mae Chong of PlusSixFive Magazine to feature my SG.Ruins Series in their lifestyle magazine. SG.Ruins is an ongoing journey which i started in 2007. These spaces which are in a state of ambiguity; whether to be demolished or to be revamped are calling out to me to tell their stories before Singaporeans forget about its existence. With more coverage from different medias both online & press, i hope these beautiful ruins continue to exist in both physical and in the hearts of all Singaporeans.

SG.Ruins: 448 Clementi Ave 3 series was also featured in this months Singapore Art Gallery Guide. More to come in my next update.

“This Way Up”

For people who were unable to visit Eye é City 2009 Exhibition at Substation and Jurong Regional Library last month, “This Way Up” photograph was selected for Eye é City 2009 Exhibition & Publication. This photo was photographed at Mount Vernon Crematorium 翡珑山, during the last day of 2009. When most people were busy preparing for 2010 count down, there were a few who chose to burn “paper money” and give prayers to the deceased.

Eye é City 2009 Publication will be out later this year as a collaboration with Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD).

Special Thanks to all Eye é City Committee & Volunteers who put in lots of precious time and effort to keep this meaningful photography event going year after year. More info about Eye é City at: http://images.eyeecity.multiply.com/

This is my 5th Series of SG.Ruins photographs showing in Singapore Art Gallery Guide (SAGG) September 2010 Issue. “SG.Ruins Series: Margaret Drive , 2010” was printed on page 12 & 13. 6C Margaret Drive will be demolished once all her “left-over” residents moves out. I do not wish that day to come soon to see another historical site vaporize into memories…

You can either grab a free copy of SAGG at all  major arty outlets around Singapore, such as Singapore Art Museum or Participating Art Galleries (SAGG website).


I caught Barney reading SAGG on his bed at night! :)

My photography coverage of France’s National Day on 14th July 2010 at the French Residence was featured in Designare (Homme)  Magazine Vol. 15, August 2010 issue in Dates section. I went, I saw and I photographed lots of Ministers, Ambassadors and yummy breads too! It’s good to see Prof Ho Peng Kee (Senior Minister of State for the Ministry of Law and Home Affairs) and Mr Olivier Caron (French Ambassadors) doing a “yumseng” for France’s National Day!

A few days ago, I received a priceless catalogue- Drawing Out Conversations: Taipei (Published by activated C Studio) from Tang Ling Nah. These photos were part of Ling Nah’s art process documentation in 2008 and recreated into Drawing the world-inside x outside in 2010 and it’s part of Drawing Out Conversations: Taipei at Nanhai Gallery, National Taipei University of Education, 20 June 2010 to 24 July 2010.

It’s great to see that my photographs are reaching out to international audiences 😀
Special thanks to Ms Tang Ling Nah.  More info on Drawing Out Conversations: Taipei at www.drawingoutconversations.com/taipei/

This is my 4th Series of SG.Ruins photographs showing in Singapore Art Gallery Guide (SAGG) August 2010 Issue. “SG.Ruins Series: Pheng Geck Avenue , 2010” was printed on page 12 & 13. These buildings were demolished within a few weeks after my photography documentation… It was never originally there in the beginning, man made it there and man took it out…

About 2 months ago, in May 2010. I covered a press conference by UBS philanthropy Forum for Designare Magazine. It was challenging to capture the happy and smiley expressions as the forum was touching on a rather serious issue: helping poverty around the world. I was also amazed to see Cherie Blair, Mathias Terheggen, Kathryn Shih, Mario Marconi and Stelios Haji-Ioannou live at the press conference.
