STREET PORTRAIT THROUGH A FRAME

Varanasi Train Station, India

Street journalism or documentary photography has been shaping the way I shoot for the past few years. It is a genre that has opened my eyes to the world.

STREET DOCUMENTARY: A WALK IN CHINATOWN

Many elderly folks just hang around at the main Chinatown podium reading the Chinese newspaper. Every evening at about 5pm, an old man will walked around the area with a stack of "Wang Bao" and "Xing Ming" papers for sale.

Chinatown is one of the must-see cultural enclaves for visitors heading to Singapore. On any day, it is always bustling with people, and the place is filled with colorful mix of old and new, from family-run goldsmiths and medicine halls, to textile stores and dim sum restaurants. It is also one of the favorite hunt in […]
