This image is part of a series for a recent work of mine photographing a traditional Taoist Funeral in Singapore.
My Uncle passed away and I was invited by the family to witness a beautiful Taoist funeral ritual that is hardly seen these days.
It is elaborate, intriguing and every part of the ritual tells a story of the circle of life.
These days, life seems to fly with no intention to slow down; October is almost gone and soon I will turn 22.
People always talk to me about the ‘5 years plan’ and ask me what is mine. To be honest, I haven’t got a clue.
I’m just making it up as I go and it is scary and so hard.
One day, I will probably turn to ash or be fertilisers for flowers in this circle of life.
What can I say? I am terrified but Carpe Diem.
I’ll make the most out of everything.
Also, an image that never made it to the final cut:
