Documenting Serangoon Rd

Each district in Singapore has its own unique history as experienced through the lives of those who live, work and play there. In these districts, there are stories that mark the contributions of individuals, and they have seen many communal milestones through the years. Each area has its iconic and familiar landmarks, spaces and structures.

As Singapore evolves, we face the challenge and opportunity to keep our identity in tandem with developing as a nation. We need to manage change, and to find different ways to retain the collective memories that we have of these places. One such way would be through documenting aspects of our city as it is today, as a record for the future.

The ‘Documenting: Serangoon Road’ project is a collaboration between the Urban Redevelopment Authority and the National Youth Achievement Award Young Photographers Network (NYAA YPN). The purpose of this project is to create an image archive through the eyes of young photographers, on the physical and social evolution of the Serangoon Road area for future generations. A group of students from various backgrounds responded to the call and embarked on a year-long project to capture the environment, life and diversity in the area. Through this process, it is also hoped that they and the audience of these pictures will have a better understanding of socio-cultural landscape.

The students were guided by professional photographers – Darren Soh, Chia Aik Beng, Bernice Wong and Philipp Aldrup, who also selected the photographs that are on display for this exhibition.
