How do we offer a fresh perspective on Singapore and present an authentic image of its people and culture?
Singapore has been a model for advancement for many countries around the globe- its achievements in the past 40+ years cannot be understated. Despite this, there is ever present criticism on its highly regulated society and lack of individuality.
While the country’s tourism infrastructure constantly tries to adapt itself to the changing desires of tourists, its real image remains shrouded in clichés that are hard to break down.
As an outsider, armed with a fresh perspective, I wanted to understand the complexities that made Singapore and its people unique and present this in an engaging format. After 6 months of research, I created a book to document my findings through a combination a visual and textual narrative.
