BLACK AND WHITE – DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE

” 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.

LIFE OF MIGRANT WORKERS THROUGH MY LENS

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.

Black & White STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

“To see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul.” Andri Cauldwell

 

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 :
