Summary

Northeast Hinterland captures evocative and thought-provoking night scenes of Punggol – a northeastern suburb that has been touted as “a waterfront town of 21st-century Singapore”. This series of photographs shows a side of Punggol that we do not normally see, where “sleep and sight are paradoxical”, and where “histories, mythologies and legacies ... play hide and seek”.

The book also documentsthe responses of 105 viewers from all walks of life. Their opinions, recollections and musings triggered by the photos offer us a fascinating, multifaceted look at history, identity, and the ambiguities of land custodianship in Singapore.
