“In my daily practice as an architect, I am responsible for the design and construction of complex buildings, such as airports, train stations, or high-rises. Architecture is a slow process, and after almost two decades of work, it seems like I am losing the ability to dream. This is why photography became vital to me – as my medium to dream. In the daytime, as an architect, I turn ambitions and desires into constructible reality; at night, as a photographer, I reverse this process, transforming spaces into fiction and figments of imagination.”

DARK CITIES Trilogy // Capsule

DARK CITIES Trilogy, the inaugural winner of the FIRST DRAFT Award by THEBOOKSHOW, is a series of three books of photographs re-imagining fringe spaces in the metropolis of Singapore, Tokyo, and Seoul. CARPARK, first in the series, investigates the nocturnal meanderings of a dark multi-storey carpark in Singapore. CAPSULE, the second book, revisits a futuristic tower in Ginza built in the 1970s, through the imagined eyes and mind of its architect. The third book EULJIRO is a lost and found diary of a fading iconic Seoul district, once a symbol of the country’s modernization.
