    this is a cut a paste from offstone

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For those who are interested:

    The photographers

    Alan Lim, 29, studied photography at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale,
    Florida. After graduation, he worked for about a year as a commercial and
    fashion photographer before joining The Straits Times in 1997. He is
    currently working on a book on Singapore's Green Plan.

    Chua Chin Hon, 29, graduated from Singapore's Nanyang Technological
    University in July 1998 with a Bachelor of Communication Studies. He joined
    The Straits Times as a journalist that same year, and is currently with the
    paper's foreign desk.

    Darren Soh, 25, is currently pursuing his Masters Degree in Communications
    at the Nanyang Technological University. He graduated with an Honours
    Degree in Sociology from the National University of Singapore. He is also a
    freelance editorial photographer.

    George Gascon, 50, has been a photographer for the last 30 years. He joined
    The Straits Times in 1992. After working in Singapore for 10 years, he is
    going back to his native Philippines to pursue his first love, farming.

    Law Kian Yan, 25, graduated from the Nanyang Technological University with
    a Bachelor of Communication Studies. She has worked at the now defunct
    Project Eyeball, Lianhe Zaobao and The New Paper.

    Ng Sor Luan, 23, is a free-lance photographer. She graduated last year from
    the Nanyang Technological University with a Bachelor of Communication
    Studies.

    Ong Wan Shu, 25, is a full-time photographer who shares a studio with a
    friend. A black and white surfing poster in Gold Coast was what piqued his
    interest in photograhy at 18. He'd since discovered the fun and
    possibilities in expressing himself using images.

    Rajendran Nadarajan, 26, is an imaging technician at The Straits Times. He
    has been taking pictures since he was 20. Three of his photographs were
    selected for publication and exhibition at The Substation, as part of the
    "A day in the life in Singapore" photography contest organised by the
    Alliance Francaise.

    Wong Maye-E, 22, graduated from Temasek Polytechnic's School of Design. She
    is a full-time photographer with The Straits Times, and is also working on
    a fund-raising project for people living with HIV and AIDS, with the Sangha
    Metta project based in Chiangmai, Thailand.


    Why Seven Five Nine?

    The meeting time for the photo-taking sessions is always 7.59am. Hence,
    Seven Five Nine.

    The photographers have covered nine places over a period of about one and a
    half years, starting first with Tekka market and the surrounding Little
    India, then also traipsing to Tiong Bahru, Redhill, Katong, Chinatown,
    Shenton Way and Jalan Besar. Wet markets are a particular favourite, great
    for lingering, and Tekka was visited twice.

    It started out a way to get back to the basics: Taking pictures in a way
    not dictated by the needs of a job, but simply to observe, to make sense of
    people and places.

    The pictures also became fodder for lively conversations during informal
    critique sessions over food and beer -- the pictures pasted on the
    available wall space at Zion Road Hawker Centre, or simply laid out on the
    floor of someone's home.

    The photo-taking sessions are still on-going.
