Parting Glances


Notify me when back in stock

Parting Glances examines a country undergoing profound development by turning a camera lens on six communities in Singapore that are at the precipice of change. As a nation grapples with preserving its precious heritage while growing its economy and housing its burgeoning population, these diverse neighborhoods are revealed through archival images, reflections of residents and merchants, and striking contemporary photographs.

From the small rustic island of Pulau Ubin, to a former British air force base, to mainland Singapore's last remaining kampong (village), a country's fading heritage is revitalized and curated for both the casual reader and the dedicated historian of Asian cultures.
