Gallery 29 – Zihan | The Parking Lot [NSFW]
The images shown here were originally taken in 2009. Performance artist Zihan, fashion stylist Patryk Chaou and I were out one night drinking and dancing at Taboo, a local gay disco in Singapore. Suddenly from nowhere, Zihan exclaimed “I want to be photographed now”. He must be joking me. It must have been 3am by then, but he was serious. We gathered ourselves and walked over to the hotel to grab my camera and set out into the dark night street of Singapore and wandered into an operational yet deserted parking lot. There was literally no one around. While I unpacked and set up my camera, Patrick was already styling Zihan, who was already shed off his clothes. He was clearly ready to be photographed. What happened next is somewhat is a blur, as I recall the seriousness that came from the shoot. Zihan was in a zone of intense anger or internal struggle and I was just there to document the feelings he was projecting.
