Grateful for the opportunity to make a long-form photo essay on my native Singapore, and on a topic that I’m already working on elsewhere too.
For The New York Times’ Sunday Magazine, special issue on climate change this weekend.
Thanks too to the agencies which provided access to make images of some parts of the country we might not otherwise see. And to Neo Wei Tat Nat and Bryan van der Beek for gear loans, Claudio Palmisano for toning work.
And appreciation too to Exactly Foundation for a seed grant to kick us off on the first chapter of the broader project.
The photo essay is paired with a story written by Samanth Subramanian.
Hanging one’s laundry out in public – okay as long as it’s clean. Thank you very much @shanghaila for the lovely tour of your wonderful M97 Gallery @m97gallery next door to this spot dripping (pardon the pun) with the layers of local life. #shanghai #iphoneonly #everydayasia #china @viiphoto

It’s already 8:30pm here in Singapore and it’s #Earthhour! Coming off the warmest year on record, there’s never been a more critical moment for the world to show solidarity for and a strong commitment to fighting climate change and protecting nature. Every year, hundreds of millions of people around the world switch off their lights for one hour as a symbolic gesture to demonstrate commitment to fighting climate change. This image, shot in Mon State in Burma, is of a family without electricity, having dinner by candlelight. The world is unequal, and is in danger with the perils of climate change. Momentum is on our side. The world is looking toward a renewable future. Join me and World Wildlife Fund this #EarthHour and let’s turn up the dark and get loud about climate action.

A little late.. I was sent this spread and interview recently, and saw the print version only last week (Thanks, Siyuan Aw!). Thank you to Chinese Photographers Magazine for this extensive interview last year by their editor, on my views on a range of topics and industry trends. Published in their October 2016 issue, as part of an on-going series of profiles of VII Photo Agency photographers in Chinese, in China. (There isn’t an online version, only a PDF… but this is the magazine’s website: http://www.chinaphoto.cc/. )
Features stories and projects I’d shot on grants and support from Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Magnum Foundation.

Going home: at the end of the work week, droves of Malaysian motorcyclists head back from Singapore. #iphoneonly #hyperlapse #malaysia #singapore @viiphoto
