Our family is honoured to be part of the expanded edition of Bob Lee’s photography project, Memory Blocks.
Bob came to take our family portrait in our living room recently, and we love the way the photos turned out.
We were very happy that Faith was well-behaved during the session because it is not that easy to keep an autistic 19-year-old young lady still for very long. She looked like she enjoyed the photo session and even managed a smile. Though she did run away at least once during the shoot.
Side note: I love how he asked me to turn on my work lights for the photo. Yes, I have two huge lights in the living room for video work, on wheeled light stands.
Memory Blocks captures portraits of families staying in HDB flats. The portraits are made in the living room, a “potent site for familial interaction”.
This expanded edition of photographs captures how the pandemic has changed the way we live.
The project is part of the 7th Singapore International Photography Festival (7th SIPF 2020).
