“The Photograph as Atlas” looks at photography’s role as a mirror of history that can be both objective and subjective at the same time. It explores the navigation and creation of history through photographs, and how – as much as they serve as a record of history – photographs may also be manipulated and navigated in new ways, proving that they are not as faithful as they seem to be.
“The Photograph as Atlas” is part of TRACE – a series of thematic exhibitions exploring areas of scholarship related to Singapore photography which may have been overlooked or understudied.
