TwentyFifteen 07/20: A Little Bit of Me from Everything Else


Is Matthew Teo a rebel without a cause? Is he always an angry character? One of Singapore’s up-and-coming young artists, Matthew lets us have a glimpse into the his world.

From the introduction of the book, “These pictures are very much an extension of myself, just as all my past series also revolved around my friends, family and military service. The everyday has, in recent years, become intimately intertwined with contemporary art, and I take daily life as my subject matter.”

The founders of Platform – Tay Kay Chin, Darren Soh, Ernest Goh and Leonard Goh – initiated TWENTYFIFTEEN to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence. 20 photographers have been chosen to create 15 images each, with a folio published for each photographer in the months leading up to August 9, 2015.
