Maids from surrounding countries like Malaysia come to Singapore for better opportunities.
Last month I was sent on a Corporate and Industrial photography assignment in Singapore for Oil & Gas company NOV. During the prep days I was traveling to different sites to meet the partners that I would be working with and scouting locations and where the sun will be during which time of the day. All standard stuff in preparation for a shoot so it is as stress free as possible for my client and that we make the best images we can in the time we have.
I previously had not had the chance to walk around in Singapore and shoot the streets so while I was traveling to and from meetings I decided to shoot some of the interesting street life there.
Considering my roots are documentary photography and photography storytelling, I found the city quite interesting. Here are some images from my quick time walking around.
Bike racks next to the metro station. The mass transit system is of course very well planned.
Pretty much everyone is on their phone all the time, but that is everywhere in the world.
Waiting area for the Subway
Smoking areas in Singapore in the famous Orchard Road Shopping district.
Philippine tourists and also local domestic house worker and her family enjoy feeding birds in a park.
Jaywalking is a serious in Singapore and crosswalks are packed with people.
