Photo Essay: Faith / Culture in Singapore

This was the photos I took during a workshop with Magnum photographer Abbas. For 1½ days of shooting, we focused on 3 of the prevalent religions in Singapore: Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Abbas has always considered religion as culture rather than faith. With this in mind, we focused not only on the temples and ceremonies, but also on the streets in its periphery – hopefully giving a peek of the people within and outside of their place of worship.
