Through this book, French expat photographer Marie Dailey hopes to show that there’s more to Singapore than what was filmed in Crazy Rich Asians.
Recently French expat photographer Marie Dailey launched a photobook that portrays the authentic lives of Singapore citizens. Captured in unique snapshots, the photos tell their stories in universal but different perspectives.
Daily Singapore is composed exclusively of “street photographs” featuring images captured in the immediacy of a fleeting moment, without any kind of staging. “As a street photographer, I never ask subjects to pose, nor the authorization to take a picture but I don’t hide either and if people don’t want to be photographed, they usually let me know right away and then I go on my way and respect their choice,” she says.
“This theme is one that is very important to me because it is a side of Singapore that I really want to value to show that Singapore has a lot of different facets.”
