    Rediscovering the Places (we thought) We Knew!

    If you ask any Singaporean, the most likely response you will get is "Singapore is too small, too boring. There isn't anywhere to go anymore!" I used to think so too until I decided to look at the small things through my analogue cameras and rediscover some of the things just "hiding" from plain sight.

    Västra Hamnen - Giving Malmoe a Facelift That Make Us Look to the Future

    Western Harbour is an obligatory area to visit if you ever find yourself in Malmoe, Sweden. It stands out with modern, semi-sustainable housing always close to the sea. It is perfect for warm summer days, with sunbaths and refreshing swims, or windy autumn days, trying out some of the cafés or restaurants.

    El Cabanyal: A Former Fishermen's Quarter in Valencia, Spain

    First there was a fishermen's village, then there was a spa, and now I say, 'enough is enough, let's declare this place a national heritage site!' Valencia has developed into one of Spain's coolest cities but some of the old areas are under constant threat.

    A Salute to the Masters: Homes for Italians (A Tribute to Dan Graham)

    In 1966, American artist Dan Graham published an article about typical one-family homes in ordinary American suburbs built after World War II. He used a cheap Kodak Instamatic camera, with a deliberately amateur approach. In this article, I wrote a tribute to him with a series of photos taken in the suburbs of my city, Como, using my pretty Diana Mini camera. Read more after the jump!

    Börkhauser Feld used to be a field, right around the corner from where I grew up. Actually, I could see it from my bedroom window. We used to play there as kids, and it looked beautiful when the whole field was bright yellow with rapeseed flowers.

    Bahay Nakpil-Bautista & The Boix House: Colonial Homes of Bautista Street

    On the tamer side of Quezon Boulevard, the echoes of colonial domesticity and fortune still linger within the old homes of Quiapo. While many have suffered the slow death of neglect and the doom of uncaring government-sanctioned demolitions, some domiciles prove to be heritage conservation successes amidst the raucous of jeepneys, fruit vendors, political rhetoric and hawkers of bootlegged videos that clog the narrow streets that were once the most beautiful in all of Manila.
