Every month, members of the collective contribute photographs to a group pool that is themed and titled by one member; and that member will select and edit the photographs into a visual narrative — that is our Flavour of the Month. This month's edit is titled The Space Between Us, and edited by Aik Beng.
See this and more from Aik Beng and the rest of 5ive Foot Way at Days We Met, our second group exhibition. Days We Met runs from 10th to 24th January 2014, and will be hosted at Objectifs Centre for Photography and Filmmaking. Admission is free.
Another list on the internet? Why, yes. We start 2014 with a look back at 2013. We take turns naming our favourite photobook for 2013, and explain why we chose the book. List begins after the jump.Read More

Every month, members of the collective take turns to come up with a theme, and edit a set of photographs that all members contribute to, into a short visual narrative.
Welcome to our Flavour of the Month for October 2013, edited by founding member Tham Jing Wen — Birdland.
Fellow 5ive Foot Way member (and local celeb) Aik Beng Chia was interviewed by The Straits Times recently for 48 Singaporean Seconds, "an audio-visual tribute to Singaporeans who have made this little red dot their home". The interview also includes a 48-second video of Aik Beng in action. You can read the interview and watch the video here.
Tonight The Streets Are Ours
Little India wakes when Singapore sleeps. I first escaped to her nightly embrace in 2010.
Like a restless moth, I was drawn to the dim lights of her dark streets and alleys. I soon found there were others like me. Immigrants and Singaporeans alike. Some sought sanctuary, others euphoria.
This book is discovery of sorts. And a diary of photographs taken with my mobile phone from 2010–2012.
Lets go out again tonight; for tonight, the streets are ours
My photo book published by Invisible Photographer Asia is now available for Singapore and International for USD$25
