These are b/w street photographs of Little India.
Think of these as a nod towards Aik Beng Chia’s work on Little India.
Check out his excellent work Tonight the Streets Are Ours here and here.
There’s definitely a strong sense of community here.
People are always in touch with one another.
Scenes of friendship.
Joy of the streets.
The streets are institutionalized and framed.
That doesn’t mean we should stop searching and looking.

I am a poet and an educator. I have come to realise in recent years that the act of writing poetry has trained my mind to be always on the prowl for everyday moments that might be suitable material for my writing.
Hence, I turn to photography in order to record some of these moments. I soon discover that the photographs I am taking, using film rangefinder cameras which are more discreet and hence suitable to the task at hand, are in the tradition of street photography.
In search of poetry, I have become a street photographer.
What can Hong Kong teach me about street photography, and what can street photography teach me about Hong Kong?
This blog seeks to address that question.
