Our Place in the World
"As we commemorate the last 200 years of Singapore's history, we are reminded of our place in the world. Many people have passed through our shores, many have chosen to stay. And with each encounter, we have gained from traded stories, journeys and shared experiences. I too, hope to offer a perspective through the lens of my camera, of people and communities on a similar journey, to make our planet , our home."
