Tonight The Streets Are Ours, by Aik Beng Chia

IPA PROJECTS, Street Photography 7 Comments

Little India wakes when Singapore sleeps. I first escaped to her nightly embrace in 2010.

Like a restless moth, I was drawn to the dim lights of her dark streets and alleys. I soon found there were others like me. Immigrants and Singaporeans alike. Some sought sanctuary, others euphoria. This book is discovery of sorts. And a diary of photographs taken with my mobile phone from 2010–2012.

Lets go out again tonight; for tonight, the streets are ours.

  6. Very nice essay, even though the edition might have been a bit tighter. Unlike all-too-modern street photography which oftens is just confusing, this contains a very good mix of documentary and modern aesthetics. Congratulations.
