Subconscious is Betty Goh’s long term project about the introspective reflections of her soul and subconscious.

Growing up in the heart of Singapore, the adrenaline rush and vibrancy of this busy city excites her. At the same time, she feels an amount of unspoken loneliness, tension and dilemma hidden beneath the surface. These overlapping and complex emotions are often expressed through Betty’s subconscious during her daily street walks and hence, the result of her visual poetry.

Through her unique use of reflections, shadows, silhouettes, long exposure, lines, shapes and spaces, Betty captures the subtle psychological aspects of a busy urban street life. While her work exudes a sense of mystery, imagination and surrealism, all her street work is un-posed and un-staged, captured within a single exposure, and with zero or minimal edits. Majority of the photos in this exhibition were shot on the streets of Singapore and some were captured in Tokyo. As a keen Leica camera user, Betty has been using the Leica Q2 and Leica Q3 cameras to capture her work.

Come visit this exhibition to celebrate Betty’s passion for abstract street photography.

This exhibition is supported by Objectifs Centre for Photography & Film and Leica Singapore.
