Masks of Singapore

Publisher: Fujifilm
  • Description
  • About the Author
  • The link between mental health struggles and living a life true to ourselves is often difficult to see, and the root causes of mental health struggles we experience are often intangible. From February to September 2021, Singaporeans from various communities participated in a mental health movement, Masks of Singapore, where they went through a 3-hour introspective self-awareness mask-making workshop, explored what their truest selves and ideal lives looked like, and expressed it onto a physical mask. Right after, they were invited to put it on and embody that truest version of themselves. 572 photographed portraits of these Singaporeans tell the story of past struggles, present circumstances, and future aspirations of a life that truly matters to them. Underneath the facades you put on, what are your deeper vulnerabilities? Outside your job title, who are you? Without society's definition of success, what is it that truly matters to you?

  • is a mental health advocacy group that aims to raise awareness and spark more conscious and forwarding conversations on mental health, emotional wellness, and suicide prevention through experiential art. Oftentimes, external expectations about who we should be and how we should act prevent us from being free to express ourselves and do the things that truly matter to us. As a result, many of us end up chasing after societal definitions of success instead of what truly matters to us, and we end up lost, confused, and disconnected from ourselves. It is this disconnection from ourselves that forms the start of the many mental and emotional struggles we face everyday, and it potentially leads to depression, and on a more severe scale, suicide. Through our work, we aim to explore the deeper conversations that underpin the mental health struggles many of us battle in our daily lives and empower people to connect to themselves, to the present, and the world around them. Ultimately, the goal is to see a society where people are free to be bold, be free, and be themselves—unapologetically—so that they can begin to live a life that matters to them.
