TwentyFifteen 05/20: Made in Singapore

$10.00

In Made in Singapore, the fifth book for TWENTYFIFTEEN, Tay Kay Chin explores the life of the foreign workers who come to our little island in search of a better life.

Through the journey of Salim, a construction worker who came to Singapore from Bangladesh almost 18 years ago, the Platform co-founder attempts to answer a questions: What did they leave behind? Who did they leave behind? What did they sacrifice? What brought them here?

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.
