Lockdown Has Changed The Way Aik Beng Chia Approaches Street Photography

For our June 2020 Collaboration Issue, 12 creatives give us their perspective through never-before-published works that reflect their frame of mind mid-circuit-breaker. Here, photographer Aik Beng Chia shares how he captures everyday Singaporean life even on lockdown.

“These photos were taken during the ongoing pandemic, which has really affected the way I take pictures. I used to roam freely on the streets all around Singapore, but now I mainly shoot when I’m out for essential purposes, such as supermarket runs in my neighbourhood. This is my answer to working within limits.”
