Esther van Vechgel: Double Stillness

Esther van Vechgel - Double Stillness

The Dutch photographer captures the hectic Asian city life by highlighting everyday objects in her first solo exhibition here.

‘This image, called “Singapore Dream”, was taken in a Kampong Glam backalley around two years ago. I like to walk around these alleys; sometimes it seems that there’s more going on there than on the streets. The double layers I use in the artworks are chosen to create the illusion that they’re one. The shots were taken in the same street to emphasise the story: one of stillness, captured in the moment, in a hectic city. The pigeon is captured frozen on its way out of the buzz, towards more quiet places.’ – Esther van Vechgel
