LAUNCH: "Yesteryears", Sean Cham

  • BooksActually 9 Yong Siak Street Singapore, 168645 Singapore (map)

BooksActually is proud to present the launch of Sean Cham's book of photography, Yesteryears.

Join Sean Cham in conversation at BooksActually as he discusses what goes on behind creating his latest documentary book on the lost sights in Singapore.

Inspired by the recent tearing down of buildings and ongoing en blocs for future developments, Yesteryears was developed in a collection of images to document and commemorate the forgotten ruins created by the ever-changing Singapore.

Yesteryears captures 50 abandoned and forgotten buildings in Singapore through a series of in situ self-portraits. The buildings photographed are in different states of ruination, from the crumbling roofs of Istana Woodneuk to the soon-to-be demolished Rochor Centre. These buildings represent the modern ruins of post independence Singapore, an era that lives not only with progress but also the fleeting ruins left in its wake.
