Foreign Eyes

Foreign workers

What an unexpected premise for a photo exhibition!

Cameras were given to migrant workers so that they can show us Singapore as they see it, as they live it. Catch the exhibition at Objectifs and look at them looking at us.

In the second series, Day Off, six local photographers show us how maids spend their day off. I’m glad no one visits the merlion on their day off.

That’s my favourite pic of the lot!

Yup, mine too. Cos it shows me a part of them as well.

I think the exhibition might have more than what’s put up on the site.

Wow, thanks for alerting me to this - looks worth seeing!

There are 54 photographs on display at the exhibition itself at Objectifs. These were chosen and curated from the 700-800 taken by the project participants. Go take a look! It’s on till 21 March.
