Last days of Sungei Flea Market
A photo movie about the little nuances and spirit of the vendors of Sungei Road Thieves Market, as it faces eviction in 2017 when the Jalan Besar MRT station opens at its doorsteps.
The market is a little quirky spot for the last chapter of oddity in Singapore, a spark of spontaneity and mess, and some room for nostalgia. Yet, just as its size has involuntarily been greatly reduced over the years, there will be no traces left of its existence when it is finally erased.
Documenting the market is trying to capture a sense of time in this transitional space. Here today, gone tomorrow, the market is a facade of Singapore you will be able to see today, but such a sight is fragile.
