ABBAS, 45 years In Photography Exhibition is on show at the National Museum Of Singapore from 18th June to 18th September 2011. We popped by and checked it out today. While the choice of extremely low lighting in the exhibition hall left us totally bewildered, we were in awe of Abbas’ body of work on show. We highly recommend a visit, even for those remotely interested in photography, and for that matter, history. Here are some photographs and notes.

In the photographs I have depicted one of the regions where refugees live. People in that region have been living under these conditions for …

IPA Photography, PROJECTS 10 Comments

I spent a few days there, it was very quiet, fine day, plenty of greens and spring wind blew gently. But there was no one. There used to be a lot of farmers, breeders, dairy farmers. It was such a bad dream in the planed evacuation area from radiation in Fukushima. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant exploded in March. Radiation spread widely, especially in the area carried by the wind. The Japanese government had already designated 20Km in radius from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant as an off-limit area. Iitate village, Namie town, katsurao village and other areas were designated as planed evacuation areas too. …
