Last January I was commissioned by Singapore's National Heritage Board to photograph a dying
aspect of Singapore culture - the wet market.
They may be commonplace in the rest of Asia, but here in a country of malls and multi-story
groceries they are seen as a places for old folks. So concerned is the NHB about their
disappearance that they've embarked on a public awareness campaign to keep this from
happening. Shown here is the Marine Terrace Market, near the East Coast Parkway.
My photos of Singapore's wet markets will be on display at the following locations:
Tiong Bahru Market till May 7
Chong Boon Market till May 21
Tekka Market from May 22 Onwards
