The 60s meets the future; Masjid Sultan Mosque, Singapore

Blue Fairy Pipe-Dreams

 

Without a doubt Singapore was one of the hardest places to replicate my grandparent’s photographs as it has probably changed more than any other country in the world since the 60s. Certainly it has gone from being a controversial little island at the foot of the Malaysian peninsula to being the wealthiest nation in the world with an average annual salary of $60,000. It is nice to note though that some things stay the same, the Masjid Sutan Mosque for instance, may now be surrounded by bistros, courtyards and gift shops instead of rundown houses, but it is as imposingly beautiful as it ever was.
