To this day, black and white photography continues to exude a unique fascination, mystery and beauty. Compared with color photography, it is the most authentic manifestation of "painting with light", while capturing the heart and soul of your subjects.
Join our Leica Q Ambassador, Chia Aik Beng (@aikbengchia), as he brings you around Singapore to capture the heart and soul of the the forgotten (or sometimes unnoticed) parts of the Singapore street, in monochrome. Gain valuable insights on his creative process from how he sees to how he selects and then edits the final images.
