A Damianwithsandra Special: Our New Photobook!

Hey everyone!

Today, we are excited to share with you one of our latest projects: our very first self-published photobook!

Actually to be honest – we have been printing photobooks for a while, but those were always for our own collection. This time, we felt that it was time to launch our own photobook and in deciding on the theme and vision, we had no difficulty in choosing one: Singapore’s very own Dragon Playground.

Exploring Jalan Kukoh!

Hey everyone!

Earlier in May 2019, an interesting online article appeared on the Internet, wherein the author recounted her life, living in a little-known public housing estate called Jalan Kukoh, in the center of Singapore. The article attracted quite a bit of online attention for its stark critique of poverty in plain sight, and naturally we were curious to find out more about this lesser known housing estate.

We were interested to see for ourselves how Jalan Kukoh was like, giving what was reported in that online article. We brought our trusty Polaroid SLR 680 SE and our Mamiya RB67 with a modified instax mini back to capture our experience.

Hey everyone,

We finally had the opportunity to use the Rollei 35 S film camera, which we had been eyeing for a while! What makes this unique (for us at least) is that the Rollei 35 S was produced in Singapore in the late 1960s! With such a connection and history behind this camera, we were ecstatic when our friend kindly lent us one to try it out!

Three Years @ iLights Festival (2019 Edition)!

Hey everyone!

We have been fervently attending the yearly iLights @ Marina Bay, a smorgasbord of new-age and tech-savvy light installations / performances that comes to life at night! This year also commemorates the Bicentennial anniversary of Singapore, when Sir Stamford Raffles first landed on Singapore, and so the iLights edition for 2019 was launched under that theme.
