In november 2008 I spent 5 days in Singapore with my wife Dagmar. It was a spontanious decision to travel to this city triggered by the intention to see our dearest friend Ai Li again very soon after the memorable and amazing days with her and our dearest friend Adrian in Berlin and Frankfurt in summer 2008.
This gallery contains the photographic impressions of the countless highlights we experienced in a short time. It`s like a patchwork of memories of many many precious moments. Word can`t express how deeply we have to say thanks to our friend Ai Li and to your incredible effort and patience to show us your exciting and inspiring hometown. You was our perfect host and wonderful friend from early morning till the evening every day. Knowing you a bit we expected a lot - but reality knocked us simply out. Never in our lifes we saw so much visual art exhibitions (Singapore Biennale 2008!) in a short time! Never in our lifes we experienced so many cultures and their everyday routines in a few days!. Time was flying so fast but what remains for ever are magical moments of deepest friendship and common experience.
A special highlight and great honour for us was to meet your best friends Rosmini and Melvin and spent a day together sharing our passion of photography. All the beautiful and funny moments are still fresh in our minds, you definitely made us feel "to be at home" in your city and we really hope to see you guys again soon, in Singapore, in Germany or elsewhere in this world! Please see Melvins fotos from our meeting: here
This will be a "wild" series, there`s no order, no chronological diary, in the tradition of my street photography from other cities.
Some special words to our friend Adrian Reilly:
We are very sorry you couldn`t accompany us on this trip because you had to take your responsibility for your job in Wales in that time. With these pictures we`d like to share some of the unforgettable moments with you. The gallery is dedicated to you.
