Coming from the concrete jungle of Singapore, where most buildings are barely a century old and they all look the same, the beautiful and historical architecture of Reservoir Hill (Baltimore, Maryland, USA) enchanted me. The well-maintained houses from the late 19th – early 20th century eludes such charm despite their age. “2101 Park Avenue” is a series of photographs I made of the house that first captivated me the moment I arrived at my rented place down the road on Newington Avenue. Unlike Singapore, where every building cowers in the shadows of each other, the houses here bask in the brilliance of the sun and their facades transform constantly during the different time of the day. The beauty of the light and shadow falling on this house intrigued me. Over the span of 12 weeks, I photographed 2101 Park Avenue from the same location at different time of the day under different weather conditions. This series documents the change of the house, not just during different weather and timing conditions but also records the subtle seasonal transformations. Accompanying the portraits of the house are photographs of interesting things that captivated my “Singaporean eye”. These images document my investigations of the light during that time of the shoot and my fascination of the American landscape.
