While most photographers (especially the expat kind) like to photograph the famous shophouses in Singapore (one must have the obligatory shophouses collage before one leaves Singapore 😉… more on this on a later post) I find the HDB (+/- public housing) a lot more interesting, as a photography subject as well as a cultural subject.

First there are very diverse and on top of it because there are public “property” I can go and climb in the floors to use it as a vantage point (I also have a great love with public parking for the same reason!) but no one photographs them as well as Darren Soh who has been on a mission to document the HDB (lot of them are being en-bloc sold in the past few years and will be taken down).
I have been to a few of his talks and last week was the opening of his exhibition and the launch of his book (which I bought obviously 🙄)

Darren pictures can be seen on his Instagram (www.instagram.com/darrensohphoto/)
and here’s his video “Before It All Goes” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm_cpuC97ig)
