When I turn towards you
in bed, I have a feeling
of stepping into a church
that was burned down long ago
and where only the darkness in the eyes of the icons
has remained
filled with the flames
which annihilated them.

Henrik Nordbrandt, from “Our Love Is Like Byzantium,” The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry (Ecco, 2010)

Singapore by Nguan 

""Singapore" is a portrait of living and longing in the city. The tender and lyrical tone used in the series is intended to mask themes of discombobulation and disconnection. Each picture is meant to seem simultaneously naïve and disquieting, so as to reflect the predicament of an adolescent nation torn between her future and the past." -Nguan
