Passing Time presents a slice of history through black and white photographs of Singapore from the 1960s to 1970s, captured by 80-year-old self-taught photographer Mr Lui Hock Seng. Mr Lui has been taking photographs of Singapore since the 1950s and worked as a part-time event photographer for weddings, dinners and funerals in the 60s. He was a member of the now defunct South-east Asia Photographic Society and has won several photography awards.

Mr Lui's
subjects of interest ranged widely from streetscapes, to portraits, architecture and industry. Through this solo exhibition, we are offered a glimpse into scenes of daily life in Singapore, in spaces from the Teochew Market at Clarke Quay, to the old Tanah Merah Village and Redhill brick factory.

Mr Lui continues to take photographs to this day. Hear about his experience and process in this intimate artist talk. Admission is free; simply RSVP via Peatix.
