"My home goes by many names. Some call it the Lion City. Others say it is just a little red dot.

I call it Singkarpor. That's what Singapore's name sounds like in Hokkien.

The country is changing. But it will always be my home, a place that holds all the memories of the people and the streets* that I love.

This is my portrait of Singkarpor."

* On the cover: pieces of Singkarpor picked off its streets.


Also known as ABC, Aik Beng Chia started photographing in 2008. His photos focus on the daily lives of people and the streets of Singapore.

In 2013, he launched his first monograph Tonight the Streets Are Ours published by the Invisible Photographers Asia, which showed Singapore's Little India after dusk. In 2014, he became one of the contributors to Everyday Asia on Instagram.
