Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. For those celebrating, it means there is a lot of things to look forward to, such as colourful processions, seasonal markets and lively lion dance. Singapore’s Chinatown is the place to be in to feel the festive mood, the lively chatter and laughter of people meeting up and exploring the streets.
This year is the year of the Dog, I decided to capture the atmosphere of the festive season at Chinatown from an architectural perspective, particularly during the blue hour. These 10 images were taken over the course of five visits as I could only be at one spot during the blue hour. I have not captured the festive season extensively, hence I may come back again in the following year to capture a different perspective.
