Jamie Hladky ‘Bukit Panjang’
Originally from Manchester UK, I’ve been lucky enough to travel fairly widely. Living overseas for so long means developing new visual understandings, I try to do this through exploration and photography. I’m currently based in Australia, spending my time seeing as much of this huge strange country as possible. The families living in Singapore’s HDB flats occupy space hundreds of times more densely filled than is typical in Australia. Every space is carefully and tightly filled. The concrete forms of the residential towers have an oppressive linear geometry, pulling you through endless interconnected passages, voids, stairwells and walkways.
