BEYOND WILDERNESSChua Chye Teck
Published by Epigram Books, 2016
Photographer Chua Chye Teck explores the fast-disappearing natural wilderness in Singapore through a series of black and white photographs. Using the forest structure to express the idea of emotional layers, his photographs are a reflection on memory and transformation and present the dualities of isolation and the unknown. The book charts the artistic and spiritual journeys of the photographer, and is as much one man’s personal encounter with nature as it is a social commentary about the fast-changing landscape of modern society.
