Dizzying Singapore Cityscapes.

Yik Keat Lee’s favorite photographs are the ones that give him what he calls the “flashback effect.”
No matter where in the world he is, he makes pictures before they slip away. Brief recollections can last forever if he’s there to photograph them.
The artist lives in Singapore and is currently serving in the country’s military. He taught himself how to make pictures when he was just sixteen, using a phone.
Since then, he’s honed is skills but remains untamed by the “rules” of photography; at twenty years old, he hasn’t lost that spark of youth.
These days, Lee travels about three to four times each year.

He thrives most in places that are as unpredictable as he is. He likes Bangkok and Hong Kong because they’re two of the rare places where modernity and tradition collide.
The best stories, he suggests, can be found in the contradictions brought on by metamorphosis.

That sense of evolution and striving is at the heart of all of Lee’s work.
When asked what inspires him most, he replies simply.
An unquenchable thirst for making beautiful images is far more important than anything that can be taught, and in Lee’s mind, you’re either born with it or you aren’t.
“People who want achieve something so badly they think about it all the time” the artist says, “These are the types of people that inspire me.”

Sights & Smells of Old Hong Kong.

I drew inspiration from the anime Ghost in the shell (1995), in which Hong Kong was a model in terms of street scenes and general atmosphere.
In the movie, Kai Tak Airport was in full operation.

But in reality, it no longer existed – it was shut down in 1998.Hong Kong is a fast-changing city.
The old is being replaced by the new. So I intend to capture the old Hong Kong before it’s gone forever.

I hope I can get people to take notice of the beauty of old Hong Kong and try to preserve the old by creating the images from my perspective.

Lost in the Beauty Of Tokyo.

My name is Liam Wong, and I work in the video games industry as Graphic Design Director at Ubisoft, where I direct the ‘look and feel’ / visual identity for games.
Originally from Scotland, two and a half years into my career I moved to Canada.
Since then I have been lucky enough to travel the world through work and in the last year I started to get into photography as a way to capture these moments, creating my Instagram account as a photo diary.

I first visited Tokyo during the press tour for the game Far Cry 4 and I immediately fell in love with the city.
Ahead of my second trip, I purchased my first DSLR and took these pictures. Scrolling through my Instagram feed, you will notice a very distinctive change of direction.
I captured various parts of Tokyo, rarely venturing far from tourist spots.

Then one night it rained and the city came to life. I got lost in the beauty of Tokyo at night. I was fascinated by how the city lit up and I just kept taking picture after picture.
It was like being inside Gaspar Noé’s film, ‘Enter The Void’, or living in the cyberpunk world that Syd Mead had created in Ridley Scott’s ‘Blade Runner’.
After posting the pictures online, my following on Instagram increased overnight and since then I have been in different cities taking photos at night.

3D Trick Art Murals, Philippines.

art-in-island-2[5]While museums around the world strictly disallow photography, this one in particular not only allow touching of exhibits and photography, they encourage it.
In fact, a trip to “Art in Island”, an interactive art museum located in suburban Quezon city north of Manila, in Philippines, would be useless without a camera.
The museum features over 50 trick art murals that were painted by a team of 18 Korean master painters who were specially flown in for the project.
art-in-island-1[5]These murals give the illusion of depth when viewed from a certain angle, and is designed to serve as a backdrop for photo opportunities.
Museum attendees are encouraged to climb into paintings and take photos of their interactions.
“Here, art paintings are not complete if you are not with them… if you don’t take pictures with them,” Blyth Cambaya, a museum employee explained to Mashable.
