” If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” Wayne Dyer
Perception of the observer depends upon the observer’s own assumptions and perception. We construct how we see things.
Stroll in the labyrinth of the narrow street of Tangier, Morocco filled with mystifying figures from its past.
Every year hundreds and thousands of Filipinos, Bangladesh, Indians, Malays, Chinese left their homes and families and work in Singapore as constructions workers. domestic helpers, nurses, engineers etc. to make more money.
It was Sunday morning when my partner and I went to Merlion Park to spend some quiet time and to see the iconic Merlion, the half-fish and half lion that symbolises Singapore’s humble beginnings as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, meaning ‘sea town’ in Old Javanese. It’s head represents Singapore’s original name, Singapura, or ‘lion city’ in Malay. Today you can see this legend at Merlion Park.
During Sunday morning, you can see large number of migrant workers, many of them working as helpers and in the constructions areas spent their time hanging around, laughing, enjoying their one day off. which I was able to capture through my lens, here take a look.
Through my lens I was able to see the world and document lives, the art of creating a memory.
I like Black and White because the subject speaks for themselves. It’s raw, honest, dramatic, simple yet has a timeless look.
Here are some of my black and white photos :
