These images were first exhibited at a group show called Repurposing Nostalgia in January 2016 in Singapore. Nostalgia is a space that is often inhabited by one. It is a singular set of memories built upon chance, place and time. This series of images pulls quotidian moments from the street. People are held by the camera's eye in brief moments, repurposing nostalgia as an ongoing act of memory.
