Sean Koh Captures Rochor Centre on Film

Singapore's Housing and Development Board built Rochor Centre way back in 1977. As of August 1 this year, the area was set for redevelopment and has been closed to the public. This drove Singaporean photographer Sean Koh to take a nostalgic trip to Rochor Centre and recount his steps through film photographs.

Sean Koh describes his photo project:

Since 1 April 2017, Rochor Centre has been permanently closed. Built 40 years ago in 1977, it housed residents from across the city that were living in poor conditions. In 1994, the greyish white facade of the buildings were painted RGBY. Sitting on prime land in the city, it has now been acquired by the government for the building of the new North-South Expressway and redevelopment of the area.

Photos were taken with Kodak Gold 200 film and Lomography Color Negative 800 film. Know more about Sean's work and other photo series through his website.
