They risk their lives working under difficult conditions, yet they are seldom appreciated. Most of the migrant workers featured in my photographs are not people any Singaporeans would take a glance at, despite their contributions. Photographing these migrant workers is my way mediating the situation, to engage the viewers in a reflective dialogue. I hope this set of images will get my viewers to rethink the contributions these migrants have made to our society and see them in a different light.
