Most people know Singapore as a modern metropolis with a booming tourism industry and a thriving food scene. But you wouldn’t know that by looking at this photographer’s work. Nguan, who goes by one name, wanted to turn his camera away from his hometown’s bustling crowds and out-of-this-world architecture and portray the city-state as an ethereal, dreamy wonderland.

My solo exhibition “How Loneliness Goes” runs from 28 February 2017 until 12 April 2017 at FOST Gallery, Gillman Barracks, Singapore.
This week the photographer @_nguan_ is taking over @newyorkerphoto’s feed, sharing images from his series “Singapore.” “My photographs are about big city yearning, ordinary fantasies, and emotional globalization,” he writes. Here, he captures the vast development Rochor Centre. These hulking, rainbow-colored apartments and shops will soon be demolished to make room for a new highway. Follow @newyorkerphoto to see more.
I’m taking over New Yorker Photo’s Instagram for the week, and posting new or unseen pictures from my “Singapore” series every day. See you there!
I’m showing seven prints from ‘How Loneliness Goes’ at ‘Comforter’, a group exhibition at SFAQ [Project] Space curated by the wonderful Petra Collins. The show also features work by Petra, Carlotta Kohl, Claire Milbrath and T.V. Wade. It runs from March 13-April 11. Pictures from the installation can be found on Purple, and a review of the show is on Artforum.
I have a two-page interview in The U Press N°9.
