When routine bites hard and ambitions are low, photographer Aik Beng Chia will be there to shoot it
If you’re wondering what Singapore really, really looks like, ask Aik Beng Chia. This Singaporean photographer started photography in 2008, and grew an inquisitive interest in the gritty and oft-unseen parts of daily life in Singapore.
If you look past the staged beauty of Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by The Bay and the glass skyscrapers of the CBD, you’ll realise there’s a lot about Singapore’s society that we take for granted – and here is where he comes in. Old aunties and uncles slogging away, mundanities suspended in time, unnamed alleyways – all of these topics have become Aik Beng Chia’s forte.
Here’s a peep into the real Singapore, as captured by Aik Beng Chia on his Instagram profile:
