Am glad to be able to wake up the early morning and make my way to Serangoon Road to document the festival.
This year i approach my subject in a more subtle way, i try to stay invisible so i can observe and capture the type of image i want. I try to be less graphic too. As most people will naturally be put off by the poking of sharp steel rods and hooks into the flesh. Still prefer my images in colors, it show the vibrance and good spirit of the festival, as if my viewers are there watching it. Black and white can be quite intrusive if the post-processing is done badly, people might interpret it wrongly if viewing in the least artistic point of view.
Pictures to share from the witness of Thaipusam festival in Singapore.
