For his new book CHINATOWN, to be released in May 2019, photographer Sha Ying speaks to book editor Tay Kay Chin about his images, his approach, and what it means to live in his adopted country – Singapore.

Chinatown

1995 - present

China-born photographer Sha Ying moved to Singapore in the early 90s, after living in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Curious about his new home, he wandered the streets after work, using photography to try to know the place better. While fascinated by Singapore’s multicultural society, Sha Ying was also particularly drawn to Chinatown. Now a Singapore Citizen, this is his first monograph.
