The Heart of Singapore


Cities are cathedrals of visual splendour and variety, and yet so often, their bustling busy streets are empty of those things that feed the spirit. I am fascinated by the city and have spent time in London, New York, Paris, Rome, Washington D.C. and Madrid. As a city state, Singapore is however the quintessential melting pot of humans and their unfettered relationship with money.

The photograph The Heart of Singapore was taken from the top of Marina Bay Sands, one of the world's most expensive buildings at US$5.5 billion. There is a beauty to the high-rise green and blue glass, and yet despite the communal dwellings where countless lives play out, the human heart is lost.
