Singapore is the city of my birth, and my first eight years of childhood.

For the first time this trip, I went to many of the more tourist-geared locations, and photographed the famous side of Singapore I am not familiar with.

This country is often balancing on a very thin line between its past and present, its history and its innovation.
The textures I discovered on my trip home sometimes mirror that effect, creating moments of aesthetic that settle deeply into my heart, mixing and mingling with each other.
Old Singapore, New Singapore, time and space between them. These photos look for all of that.
