POLITICAL LANDSCAPES (Singapore, 2011)

In Singapore the political campaigns are generally short. In the ten days running up to an election political parties organise mass meetings, where they hammer away at their aims and ideals. Many public spaces, from sports stadium to parks, become political theatres. The nature of the gatherings – which also offer free entertainment – brings out tens of thousands of people. Darren Soh focuses not on the candidates, but on the locations themselves.

Biography

Darren Soh (Singapore, 1976) was trained as a sociologist, but decided he would rather record society than write about. In addition to commercial work puts his time into his own projects, for which he turns his camera on the landscape and its use, in and outside of the city. For instance, he wants to record Singapore before this city-state is entirely swallowed up by onward-rushing modernisation. In 2009 Photo District News recommended Soh as one of the '30 Photographers to Watch'.
