The thought of shooting in a cemetery park would be creepy, eerie, and crazy (?!) Well that is quite true for most cemetery parks but there is one which is neither scary nor eerie. It is the Japanese Cemetery Park (日本人墓地公園) located in Chuan Hoe Avenue. This is one of the largest in Southeast Asia with 29,359 square metres and consists of 910 tombstones.
If you walk around the park, you will be able to come across the tomb keeper (2nd generation), Mr Lim Geok Qi, he has been the tomb keeper for many years. I believe if you want to know more about the cemetery park, he is the one to talk to. Like what I said at the start, you will not feel eerie while walking around the park, so have fun shooting and enjoy the peacefulness.

Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
