    I think someone got confused with the many dates and venues on the website.
    Here are the details of the exhibitions taken from http://www.monthofphoto.sg/07/index_exhibitions.shtml

    Errance by Raymond DepardonErrance is an exhibition of 81 works by French photographer and documentary filmmaker, Raymond Depardon. A largely self-taught photographer who learned through experience in the field, Depardon belongs to a generation of French photographers reluctant to over interpret their subjects as is evidenced in Errance, or Wandering in English. It is for Depardon, as much a quest for that special place, the intermediary zone, as it is a search for himself as a photographer. The photographs that make up this exhibition cannot be seen as only landscapes but a certain questioning of Depardon himself, his work, his relationship with his subject. This exhibition is co-presented by the French Embassy in Singapore and the Alliance Française de Singapour and is a touring exhibition of Magnum Photos.

    The exhibition is on from 30 June to 30 July at the SG Private Banking Gallery, Alliance Française de Singapour. The exhibition is open from Monday to Saturday, 11am to 8pm, closed on Sunday.



    Martin Parr RetrospectiveRetrospective is an exhibition of over 200 works by Martin Parr, spanning his early career to the present. Parr, one of Britain’s foremost contemporary photographers, has been taking photographs of ordinary things for thirty-five years. The dwindling congregation of a Yorkshire chapel, home made jam at a village fete, school speech days, sitting rooms, dining tables, prize marrows and tea trays. His search for ‘the ordinary’ has taken him to Las Vegas and Athens, Tokyo and the Gambia, to Ilford, Oregon and Milton Keynes. Retrospective is a survey of his work from the early 1970s to 2000. Before coming to Singapore, the exhibition had travelled to the United Kingdom, France, Denmark, Italy and Korea. The Prints Sponsor of this exhibition is HP and it is supported by the British Council. It is a touring exhibition of Magnum Photos.

    The exhibition is on from 6 July to 29 July at the City Hall (old High Courts). The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm, closed on Monday



    Objectif ParisObjectif Paris is an exhibition of over 80 photographs which have been chosen from among the municipal collections of Paris; Musée Carnavalet, Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Bibliotheque historique de la Ville de Paris, Maison europeenne de la photographie, Fonds municipal d’art contemporain. The exhibition invites us to go in search of the “elusive Paris”. Through the magnificent visual journey of this exhibition, it can be found at once, the high moments of history and the simplicity of common life, the “great portraits” of the capital as well as its metamorphoses. Objectif Paris chronicles Paris over a span of a century through the lens of 39 historically significant and internationally renowned photographers ranging from Brassai, Eugene Atget, Cartier-Bresson, Wily Ronis, Edouard Boubat, Marc Riboud to Martine Franck and William Klein. This exhibition is presented by the French Embassy in Singapore, Cultures France and the Mairie de Paris.

    The exhibition is on from 6 July to 29 July at the City Hall (old High Courts). The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm, closed on Monday



    Out of FocusOut of Focus is an exhibition component of MOP that serves as a platform to showcase new photography talents in Singapore. Out of Focus aims to bring into focus photographers who have not been exposed to the Singapore public. The exhibition this year features the work of three photographers with interests in differing subject matters. They are Matthew Teo, Sha Ying and an art collective, A Dose of Light.
    Matthew Teo’s work titled Bukit Batok Boys documents a body of work on a group of boys from his neighbourhood of Bukit Batok, documenting their growing up years together. Titled Bukit Batok Boys, his exhibition documents with unflinching honesty and raw emotions the boys at play, taking us into their world of hedonism, leisure and pleasure and what boys do outside work and school.

    Sha Ying’s works titled, Travel centres around the notion of travel which to him has connotations bigger than tourism. Travelers are not necessarily tourists, they do not necessarily always have the luxuries of travel. With this in mind, Sha Ying had gone out to document other travelers, people who have left their home countries to seek a better life elsewhere.

    A Dose of Light presents the photographs of Wu Xiao Kang. The series of haunting images are the final roll of film taken by Xiao Kang before he committed suicide at the age of 26. The photographs lead us through the deserted mental hospital where Xiao Kang had previously received treatment. The building was documented by Xiao Kang repeatedly in his work and the images reflect his associations with the institution and his desire for escape.

    The exhibition is on from 6 July to 29 July at the City Hall (old High Courts). The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm, closed on Monday

    Just back from the Errance photo exhibition at the Alliance Francaise.

    Mostly street photography and landscapes. All B&W and strangely in Portrait format.

    Very inspiring. So much so that I would like to try some street photography which I have hardly done so far. This is a month long exhibition that any serious photog shouldn't miss.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    I've never been to the City Hall for any of the exhibits. Can anyone tell me where the main entrance is?

    It's the most obvious grand entrance, right in front and centre Can't miss it.
    After City Hall, you can then walk towards the Arts House to view another exhibition: Israel - Birth of a Nation.

    Thanks!! It's just that i thought that might be another smaller entrance. The stairs up to the 'grand' entrance always looked intimidating to me.
