6ixth Now on line

A few months ago, I highlighted a photo exhibition by Jeff Chouw at the Substation. The exhibition was about Singapore’s opposition candidate (only 1 of 2 here) Chiam See Tong’s campaign during last year’s General Elections. Jeff finally put these photos online. I have never seen opposition politicians given such arty finesing. They look really good. I asked Jeff, a marine-biologist-by-day what his next project was, he said “Geylang” (Singapore’s Red Light disctrict). He said he was interested in spaces that only men were privy to. For this series, there won’t be people in it, just spaces. Meanwhile, he broke his foot and is hobbling around. So the photography is put on hold until he can run again. He says “In case I am chased”.
