When we pass by landscapes they appear fixed in time but they change around us constantly. Singapore has gone through an incredible change over the past 8 years, and I have tried to capture as much of this change as possible. There were no permanent cameras used in this film, it required regular site visits over 988 shoot days and over 3300 matched shots.

2020 has been a tough year, but hopefully this film will help you to reflect on all that you have achieved, and know that this difficult time will pass.
