Edmund Low

1965 , Singapore

Edmund Low grew up in Toa Payoh for more than 30 years until he got married and moved out to Farrer Park. Graduated from the National University of Singapore in Architecture (1994), he currently works as a full-time architect in a small private practice which he established in 2000. Edmund has always had an interest in photography. He has been taking photographs as a hobby since 1984.

The photos shown in this exhibition were captured around 1986-87. Depicting scenes of Kampong Glam, Chinatown and Farrer Park, these photos not only document the built environment and neighbourhoods, but also the people who lived in these areas and their cultures. Some of these areas no longer exist; the intangible characteristics associated with them will eventually cease.
