Why We Love Singapore – A Photo Exhibit

2

As a lead up to the country's 47th birthday on the 9th of August, the Lion City's birthday organizer decided to take us Singaporeans on a journey to rediscover the place we call home. A photographic exhibit is one of the ways that they are doing it.

The theme for this year’s National Day celebrations is “Loving Singapore, Our Home.” One of the ways that the organizing committee is reaching out to Singaporeans is through a photo exhibition and road show that celebrates the things we call home.

According to their “website”:http://www.ndp.org.sg, the objective of the exhibition is to let Singaporeans "better appreciate Singapore and nationhood, and also deepen their understanding of the performances for National Day Parade 2012.”

The locations of the exhibition and road show include public places, public libraries, and shopping centres. When the road show stopped at Toa Payoh Hub on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2012, I knew I had to snap the moment.

It was a quiet when I visited the road show around noon but within minutes, people from all walks of life started to crowd round the exhibits. I suspect they must have just finished their lunch and decided to check out the exhibition.

Looking at the number of people stopping by the road show and checking out the photos, I dare say that the organizing committee has met their objective of catching the attention of passer-bys.

The road show will ultimately end at The Bay by Esplanade, where a carnival will take place from the 8th to the 12th of August.

    Lomography Singapore and Parallel Planets Present: 'Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition'

    Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.

    The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
