"Chinatown" a solo photography exhibition by Sha Ying

#Free Admission
Opening Reception and Book Launch: Thurs 25 Apr #2019 , 7.30pm

Sha Ying moved to Singapore in the early 90s, after living in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Curious about his new home, he wandered the streets after work, using photography to try to get to know the place better. While fascinated by Singapore’s multicultural society, Sha Ying was also particularly drawn to Chinatown. Now a Singapore Citizen, this is his first monograph.

"Chinatown" comprises a book and an exhibition of a selection of black and white photographs of Chinatown, Singapore, taken by photographer Sha Ying from 1995 to 2002. The photos have documented the changes of the landscape of Chinatown due to urbanisation and how the people and spaces have been greatly affected by social development.
